*SCAPEmedia SCREEN: Outsiders | 2004 | Singapore | Sam Loh | R(21)


Sam Low will be present for a dialogue session after the screening.

NOTE: We apologise for the confusion. All tickets sold are non-refundable. (Please read the important notes below)

Mention the name Sam Loh and local film fans would almost immediately connect this prolific filmmaker with gratuitous sex and violence, genre elements that are seldom seen in Singapore cinema. His recent feature films “Lang Tong” and “Siew Lup” were notorious for pushing the envelope of content that are allowed by our film censors for mainstream theatrical release. His debut independent feature “Outsiders” contains objectionable scenes that required mandatory cuts from MDA leading to the film’s withdrawal from SIFF2004, and it has not been shown publicly in Singapore ever since.

Interestingly and paradoxically, there is another side to Sam Loh as a veteran director of television programs and drama, displaying a range that sees him directing drama series for Channel 5 (Lions Mums, In Cold Blood) Channel 8 (C.L.I.F 4, Dream Coders) and Suria (9 Lives) to Kids Central content. How does the prolific and versatile filmmaker traverse and switch between his television and commercial work to R21 exploitation flicks such as Lang Tong? Hear it from the man himself as he shares his inner most obsessions about filmmaking and his extensive experience behind the camera.
