Condoms aren’t just for protection. They can also be used to save a failing marriage, seduce a plumber, or to punish a selfish playboy. And so it is for this quirky romance comedy in which nothing seems to make sense, and yet everything fits together nicely.

Adam is a playboy who dislikes wearing condoms. One day, he wakes up with a condom that he can’t remove. Meanwhile, Ah Hua is contemplating divorcing her husband of 30 years. AhNiu, who has been visiting prostitutes suddenly recalls how he tricked Ah Hua into thinking that condoms were balloons when he first pursued her so many years ago. Baoling, a condom critic gets advice from Durian, a talking condom on how to seduce Thor, a plumber who has come to fix her ‘faulty’ tap.

SPOTLIGHT: Indie Producing with Han Yew Kwang and Lau Chee Nien

Join us after the screening and meet the filmmaking duo of writer/director Han Yew Kwang, and producer Lau Chee Nien. Yew Kwang and Chee Nien are well known for their unique brand of comedy and several independent feature films, including UNARMED COMBAT, 18GRAMS OF LOVE, WHEN HAINAN MEETS TEOCHEW, and most recently RUBBERS, which was commercially released in cinemas in 2015. Join Chee Nien and Yew Kwang as they will be sharing their experience on the more practical aspects of filmmaking from crowd funding to securing a distributor and marketing their film. This talk is especially relevant for the independent producers and filmmakers, as well as audiences who will like to get an insight into what goes on behind the producing of an indie feature.
