Singapore, 27 November 2015 – Stepping out from a seemingly ordinary laundry shop and onto the red carpet at Marina Bay Sands are the stars from The Laundryman.
Leading actress Sonia Sui Tang from Taiwan, Singaporean actress Yeo Yann Yann, as well as the film’s Taiwanese director, Lee Chung met with their fans and graced the screening of their film, shown as part of the on-going 26th Singapore International Film Festival (SGIFF).
Straddling across a surprising blend of genres between horror and comedy, The Laundryman is the novelist-turned-filmmaker’s first feature film. Lee Chung’s previous short film, Mochi, won him titles of Best Short Film and Best Director at the Golden Harvest Short Film Awards in Taiwan.
Running from 26 November to 6 December 2015, SGIFF will take place across various venues, including Marina Bay Sands, which returns this year as Presenting Sponsor. The other screening venues are National Museum of Singapore, Shaw Theatres Lido, National Gallery Singapore, The Arts House, The Projector and The Substation.

SGIFF’s Official Sponsors include Presenting Sponsor, Marina Bay Sands; Official Festival Time Partner, IWC Schaffhausen; Official TV, Fox International; Official Airline, Singapore Airlines; Official Technology Partner, Mocha Chai Laboratories and Official Art Magazine, Art Republik.
