4:30 by Royston Tan at ICA

Royston Tan's second feature film 4:30 opens at the ICA cinema from 23rd NOV for 2 weeks only. This is the second part of his trilogy of films based around numbers. The third feature, 881 was a huge success in Singapore.

Royston Tan, is a unique filmmaker, controversial and extremely talented. His debut feature 15 has won numerous prizes around the world and instantly thrust him into the international spotlight. 4:30 is a tender portrait of Xiao Wu (Xiao Li Yuan), an eleven year old Chinese Boy and his tenant Jung(Young-jun Kim), a thirty-something Korean man. Told entirely from the perspective of Xiao Wu, this story of two very different characters is less about friendship than about a shared experience and appreciation of solitude.

"Remarkable and Beautiful" Encounters Film Festival

Peccadillo Picture and ICA have offered SCNUK members a discount to see the film. Please email to
