Singaporean director K. Rajagopal’s feature film debut, A Yellow Bird, was picked to be screened at the International Critic’s Week showcase during the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. Rajagopal found himself catapulted from the back alleys where much of A Yellow Bird was set to the glitz and glamour of the French Riviera.
It was a glittery affair at last night's Silver Screen Awards which was attended by film industry's stars and stalwarts that include Taiwanese actor Chen Bolin, Hong Kong actress Cheng Pei Pei, Malaysian actress Yeo Yan Yan, local actress Irene Ang, German actress Natassja Kinski, French actress Marine Vacth, and several local award-winning directors like Anthony Chen, Royston Tan, Boo Junfeng and Kelvin Tong. The event was hosted by our very own funny-man Adrian Pang.
