The following are excerpts from a FB message sent by Writer / Producer Edmund Yeo:
Ping Ping is 19 and wants to go to Japan to work in a car parts company. She's under the guardian of her aunt, Madame Tien, who shuffles her between two jobs; working in a pig farm, and cleaning dishes in a rundown restaurant. Tien is also involved in a baby factory scheme, pairing young women with migrant workers and then selling the babies for money. Both survive with each other in a love-hate symbiotic manner, until a truth about her aunt is revealed to Ping Ping.
Written and produced by Woo Ming Jin and Edmund Yeo.

Some time late last year, I was involved in a very intense 4-day shoot of an equally intense short film, then entitled Dark Sun. Now it has been renamed, Doghole, a name perhaps more befitting it's subject matter.
There'll be a special screening of the film as well as a post-screening discussion this Saturday at MAPS Art Space.
Doghole is based on a true story, a story passed down to the director, Malaysian artist Wong Hoy Cheong, from his father about his experiences during the Japanese Occupation of Malaya. Whether through perception at the time or through Hoy Cheong's vision, the short film has some pretty surreal moments, including an woman singing Chinese Oldies in the middle of an execution. The surreal moments are then juxtaposed with some pretty gruesome ones, with various scenes of the POWs, mainly ethnic Chinese, kept in captivity under less than ideal conditions.
