UNLUCKY PLAZA is Kwek’s first full-length feature film which represented Singapore as the Opening Film of the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival – a first for Singapore films! It also opened the Warsaw International Film Festival and the 25th Singapore International Film Festival, enjoying sold-out screenings at all three events.

A sold-out success at the Toronto International Film Festival and Singapore International Film Festival, UNLUCKY PLAZA has been given a two-day extension to 14 and 15 May 2015, and possibly a weekend screening – subject to audience response during the two-day extension.

Sh*t Hits The Fan In The World’s Safest City

When a chance to save his ailing diner goes belly up, Onassis Hernandez, an émigré and single- father living in affluent Singapore, is pushed over the edge. He takes a motley group of citizens hostage in a designer bungalow and publicizes his act on Youtube. As the police and international media descend on the crime scene and riots break out in in the city, an increasingly desperate Onassis forces the situation to a violent, heart-stopping conclusion.

“A nail-biting comedy thriller from one of Asia’s most exciting new directors” (Toronto International Film Festival), UNLUCKY PLAZA stars Adrian Pang, Judee Tan, Guo Liang, Shane Mardjuki and Filipino star Epy Quizon in a show-stopping performance as the beleaguered Onassis.
