  • The Elephant and the Sea

    2007. Malaysia. Written and directed by Woo Ming Jin. With Cheong Wai Loon, Chung Kok Keong. Gorgeously shot on Malaysia's west coast, with economy of storytelling and sparse dialogue, Woo's film is a contemplative and intoxicating drama, bristling with wit and visual acuity, about a mysterious malady that has caused the fish to die. Two men—a middle-aged fisherman who has just lost his wife, and a teen who's sliding deeper into a life of petty crime—are forced to cope with the surrounding death and ruin. In English, Mandarin; English subtitles. 95 min.

In the Film exhibition Asian Cinevisions 2007
