Here is the online premiere of Lak Boh Ki, also known as Drop Nowhere! The world’s first Hainanese animated short film produced and directed by yours truly with the support of LASALLE College of the Arts.
Lak Boh Ki is a Hainanese term for “Drop Nowhere”. A one-and-a-half year old baby who dropped his plush Merlion toy onto the ledge outside of his HDB apartment window tries to get it back, and in the palm-sweating process reveals the contemporary Singaporean landscape made up of foreigners.
The film has traveled several festivals including Singapore Chinese Film Festival, DOK Leipzig, Sommets du cinéma d’animation, Nagoya Digital Arts Festival and Digicon6 ASIA, and some more.
Hope you will enjoy it!
