First of all, I'd like to congratulate Director Anthony Chen for winning Best New Film at Cannes for his feature film, Ilo Ilo.
It is an awesome achievement to win at Cannes.
That said, I'd like to address the nutters out there who are now suggesting that because the film was funded by the MDA, it is some kind of pro-foreigner propaganda.
Dear Conspiracy Theorists of Singapore, who cares if Anthony Chen's Cannes-winning film was funded by MDA/gahmen or not?
You win something big yourselves first then talk.
Besides, he managed to get funding from gahmen leh! It should be doubly celebrated!
P.S. Oh, and thanks, Cannes, for correcting your website that said the film was from China (wah lau eh).
