Film picks: Award winners Old Fox, Stonewalling and Society Of The Snow

Film buffs should not miss their last chance to catch the newest Best Narrative Feature winner at the Golden Horse Awards. 

Stonewalling – a Chinese-language movie helmed by the husband-and-wife team of Japanese director Ryuji Otsuka and Chinese film-maker Huang Ji – won the top prize at the awards ceremony held in November 2023. It also took home the Best Editing award.

While it did not have a wide theatrical release in Singapore, the film has been playing at the Asian Film Archive, with a final screening on Feb 4 at 5pm. 

Stonewalling marks the final instalment in the film-making couple’s loose trilogy that shines a light on the plight of young women in China, coming after Egg And Stone (2012) and The Foolish Bird (2017). 

In this movie, 20-year-old college student Lynn (Yao Honggui), who aspires to be a flight attendant, finds her life disrupted by an unplanned pregnancy. While her boyfriend wants her to get an abortion, Lynn is reluctant to do so and eventually finds herself exploring a complicated adoption arrangement.
