Starting with an filmic truism: "everything sounds better in French, even if it’s merely Google Translated"; Kitty Yeung and Candice Ng's entertaining and insightful short ephwaipi wants you to know that it's serious about not taking itself seriously.
Despite being filled with humorous, 'peeking behind the curtain' moments, the film and its makers aren't afraid when it comes to raising more serious lessons amongst the laughter, commenting on gender, romance and labour exploitation.
Visually dynamic, creatively freewheeling and refreshingly ararchic, this graduate thesis film showcases a filmmaking duo who have plenty to say.
