The Malaysian Film Week is a mini-film festival that was screening numerous Malaysian films in Roppongi Cinemart.

This festival had some mini-focuses on the late Yasmin Ahmad, the works of James Lee (his award-winning CALL IF YOU NEED ME and the two editions of 3 DOORS OF HORROR he produced, which include a segment that I directed, FLOATING SUN) and a few of Pete Teo's stuff that he produced (the ever popular 15 Malaysia film omnibus), two shorts produced by actress Sharifah Amani etc.

Woo Ming Jin's THE SECOND LIFE OF THIEVES (which I produced and co-wrote) also made its Japan premiere here.

Feedback after the three screenings had been overwhelming. Thanks to everyone who took their time to tweet their thoughts on the film. ありがとうございます!


















































I tried replying to some of the tweets, to various comedic effect.

On replying whether it was a homage to Edward Yang's THE TERRORIZERS (it is, I went through the film, along with some of Hou Hsiao-Hsien's films, while preparing to shoot Durians):


On RIVER OF EXPLODING DURIANS actress Joey Leong.

On the similarities to Hou Hsiao-Hsien's DUST IN THE WIND and Edward Yang's THE TERRORIZERS.


Next stops for Durians in April?
