WAMM - We Are Malaysian Made : FILM | THEATRE | MUSIC | EVENTS
 
Picture
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.

The shoot itself was equally as intense, shot over a span of 4 days in a shophouse along Jalan Mesui and on location in Kuala Kubu Baru. Funnily enough, Hoy Cheong was also partly funded by a Japanese Art Council....

Here are some pictures to whet your appetite....
