Small Hours of the Night
World Premiere: IFFR 2024
Singapore, in the late 1960s. The newly independent country is still grappling with its identity. In a dark room, a woman is trapped, being interrogated by a man. Through the course of one long night, identities and duration start to blur. Ghosts from the future haunt their conversation, telling of a bizarre tombstone trial that speaks to the state's nascent political and legal landscape.
"Hui's film represents a rare political work from Singapore, one that tackles the city state's iron-fisted policy towards dissent head on." - IFFR
