Director: Derrick Cui
Rating: PG / 19 mins
Eternity and Wei Wei are two people who are in love,
but with vastly different personalities and lifestyles. In addition, both of them have a different understanding
and expectation of what this relationship entails. A work
of visual poetry, the story laments how seemingly minor issues can snowball, to understand our loved ones, and cherish that "special moment in time".
Starting his career at Mediacorp's TVC arm a decade ago, Derrick moved on to MTV Asia, directing various on-air promos, and artist image spots. Wanting to try different drama and documentary genres, he left to freelance as a director/writer.
Derrick's films have featured regularly and won awards at major film festivals around the world. His latest film, When Night Fa11s, premiered and won a merit award in Milan.
