A new movie written and directed by Ken Kwek ’10 (MFA, Kanbar, Dramatic Writing), Sex.Violence.FamilyValues offers a fresh take on Singapore, telling ‘three dirrrty stories from the world’s cleanest city’. The film will open exclusively at Cathay Orchard Cineleisure on October 11, 2012.
Ken Kwek graduated from New York University Tisch School of the Arts Asia with an MFA in Dramatic Writing. His other writing credits include screenplays for The Blue Mansion, It’s A Great, Great World and Kidnapper.
Sex.Violence.FamilyValues features three stories looking at an alternative side of Singapore. Story one in Sex.Violence.FamilyValues is about a kindergarten principal who is disturbed to find a series of morbid cartoons drawn by a docile pupil. The second story is about a porn actor struggling with his role in a Singapore’s first ‘romantic cumedy,’ and the last story is about a nightclub bouncer who faces off with the toughest troublemaker he has ever encountered: a teenage stripper.
Sex.Violence.FamilyValues has screened in film festivals around the world, and received the Audience Award at the Gotham Screen International Film Festival in New York.
The film stars Adrian Pang, Pam Oei, Sylvia Ratonel, Tan Kheng Hua, Benjamin Heng, Osman Sulaiman and Vadi PVSS. Sex. Violence. FamilyValues is produced by The Butter Factory and Ken Kwek.
