The LOVE trilogy dvd

To push fund-raising efforts for my upcoming, still-incomplete feature film, RAMUAN RAHASIA, I have compiled my short films into a single dvd disc, called The LOVE Trilogy.

The LOVE Trilogy consists of the award-winning films LOST SOLE, À LA FOLIE and AMEEN.

Each of these films has different themes and the characters that reside in these films echo the various interpretations and personifications of what love could be about. LOST SOLE takes off after Friday noon solat when kiayi Haji Sabtu discovers to his dismay that his slippers are missing. The search to find his slippers leads to self-discovery. À LA FOLIE takes its inspiration from the classical Ramayana texts. Set in Singapore’s “Little India” at Serangoon Road, this second film in the trilogy explores love with a post-modernist take on this much-beloved literary classic. The final film, AMEEN, explores what it means to love behind facades of spirituality and flawed veneers. Visit this link for details.

S$20 each. Overseas orders add S$10 for postage (registered airmail).

UPDATE: Here is the review of The LOVE trilogy dvd.

The idea of using children for the cover is to illustrate LOVE in its purest form and a child's innocence exemplifies this perfectly. Artwork by Sanif Olek.



PS: Just in case you are wondering, these kids are my nieces (Syiqin & Adila) and nephews (Alif & Syafiq), in a beautiful moment captured on my camera more than 12 years ago.
