Interview with Anthony Chen: In the end it is always the women that pick up the pieces

Anthony Chen was born in Singapore in 1984. His short film “Ah Ma” (2007) won a prize in Cannes for best short film and his first feature film “Ilo Ilo” (2013) did even better. It won a lot of prizes, such as the Golden Horse Award for Best Feature Film and Best New Director with the most prestigious one being the Camera d’Or at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. His second feature “Wet Season” was received well by film critics and was recently released in France.

We met with him during Fica Vesoul, where his film screened in avant première in anticipation of the French release and talked about the pressure to make new films, language and its role in society, infertility and other interesting topics.
