It was meant to be a final-year project for four Film, Sound & Video (FSV) graduates, but it turned into an award-winning film that has been screened at international film festivals.
The 18-minute film titled “Left Hook” by Muhammad Salihin Bin Ramli, Nur Adilah Sardali Nur Azisah Aziz and Zheng Hui Ting is about a teenage girl who turns to illegal boxing to earn money to escape from an abusive father.
It was the only production from Singapore that won in the Asia-Pacific Region category of the international KODAK Film School Competition last year.
It was also selected for screening at the 11th International Film School Festival in Uruguay, and the VGIK International Student Festival in Moscow.
Muhammad Salihin, 20, the director, says, “It’s been a blessing to have worked with a wonderful cast and crew. We all achieved this together.”
Left Hook is a groundbreaking film in the local film scene as it is the first one to feature boxing.
