Enjoy your Deepavali holiday with an exclusive screening of BEFORE WE FORGET one month before it releases in theatres on 17 November!

dir. Jess Teong 张爵西
2017 | Malaysia | In Chinese with English and Chinese subtitles | 115 min | PG

Jess Teong’s feature debut, THE KID FROM THE BIG APPLE, made waves last year, both critically and commercially, with multiple festival awards and lots of uplifting accounts of audiences universally moved to tears. Jess not only directed but also scripted and art-directed this beautiful story of a grandfather (Hong Kong’s renowned action star Ti Lung) and his granddaughter (amazing newcomer Sarah Tan Qin Lin) breaking down culture, language, and generation barriers to bond in ways truly reflective of deep family love.

Now, this lovely story continues, in BEFORE WE FORGET. The bond is there, the barriers are gone, but will there really be a happily-ever-after future for this endearing family? Ti Lung and Sarah are joined by Ti Lung’s real-life son, Shaun Tam, and multiple award-winning Debbie Goh as memories are preserved, new challenges are faced, and what is perhaps the most severe test of all confronts everyone in their circle of concern and love. Kenneth Tan, Chairman of the Singapore Film Society, calls this “the most touching movie you’ll see this year”.

张爵西首度指导的作品《我来自纽约》于去年上映。无论在票房收入或者是主要电影奖项, 都获得不俗的成绩。 身兼编剧及导演的她,将资深武打巨星狄龙和新晋童星陈沁霖搭配成一对来自不同背景的爷孙。爷孙们以爱来冲破文化,语言和辈分的障碍, 反映出了家人之间深深的爱可以打动人心, 并赚取不少观众的热泪。

这一分爱, 在续集《当我们在一起》得到了延续。隔离着大家的障碍已不在, 取而代之的是家人之间深深的亲情。但, 这就代表着这家人从此以后就过着幸福愉快的日子吗?狄龙之子谭俊彦及获奖女星吴天瑜加入了阵容,以应对新的挑战,并同时保留着所有美好的回忆。 这, 就是给所有人对于爱与关怀最大的考验。新加坡电影协会会长陈继贤先生就说:“这将是今年令你最感动的电影”。

There will be a post-screening dialogue with Director Jess Teong 张爵西, who is also the director and writer of both screenplays.
