Omnibus: Letters From The South
Letters from the South is a collection of six short films about the overseas Chinese people in Southeast Asia. Thai filmmaker Aditya Assarat describes a reunion in Thailand between two cousins, one Thai, the other Chinese; Royston Tan from Singapore tells of the special meaning that making the traditional Popiah dish has for a Chinese family; Midi Zhao from Myanmar follows the death of a grandfather surrounded by Chinese customs in a village in Myanmar; Sun Koh from Singapore makes a small-scale comedy about the commercialisation of the local radio station, influenced by mainland China; Tan Chui Mui from Malaysia composes a poetic, visual reflection on being an outsider; and Tsai Ming-liang, also born in Malaysia, observes the seventh-storey apartment in which he grew up as a child.
