Dir. Wong Chen-Hsi / 88 min / 2012 / Singapore / In English and Malay with English subtitles / Rating Parental Guidance
Set in 1980s Singapore, Innocents is a delicate coming of age story about Syafiqah, a young girl who, after being abandoned by her parents, befriends an ostracised boy, Ah Huat. Misunderstood and bullied, both outcasts escape into their own world of fantasy and freedom – until tragedy strikes. Gently immersive with sensitive imagery and honest performances, the film investigates memories of childhood within the landscape of a swiftly evolving city state.
Innocents won awards at major international film festivals, including Best Director (Asian New Talents Award), Best Screenplay (Ourense IFF) and the Jury Prize (Films de Femmes Creteil).
