POP AYE (working title: popeye)

Country: Singapore/Thailand

 

Reviews:

 

"The first feature by New York-based, Singapore-raised writer-director Kirsten Tan is unhurried and unforgettable. Tan ultimately is concerned with what’s unknowable and mysterious in all of us. "
- Hollywood Reporter

"Warm yet unsentimental, graced with the lightest touch of surrealism, this opening-night offering from Sundance’s world cinema dramatic competition is a joy for patient viewers." - Variety

"In a way that gives the film its own energy, it is not a tidy film with how it treats people or shares its big heart, adding further credence to this story being more like, in animal movie terms, Au Hasard Balthasar than Operation Dumbo Drop." - RogerEbert.com

"Pop Aye is poetically profound, but the elephant in the room is really its warm heart. We’re immensely pleased to be working with such an original talent in Kirsten Tan on this audience charmer.” - Kino Lorber
