Film "The Tiger Factory"

Official Invitation for Student Work at Cannes International Film Festival

Edmond Yeo, who was in charge of planning and screenwriting

"The Tiger Factory," a film planned and written by Edmond Yeo, a Malaysian exchange student in the Kohei Ando laboratory at the Graduate School of Global Information and Telecommunication Studies, and jointly produced by the Ando laboratory and Malaysia's Greenlight Pictures, was officially invited to the Directors' Fortnight Section at the 2010 Cannes International Film Festival.

Under the guidance of Professor Ando, Yeo was in charge of planning, screenwriting, casting, filming, editing and post production, and Malaysian director friend, Woo Ming served as director.

Yeo also directed the 2009 film "Kingyo," which was selected for the 66th Venice International Film Festival short film competition. We can hold high expectations for Yeo's next work.

The main character is a 19 year old girl who dreams of going to Japan.
