The Body”

Tweetable Logline:

Two crooks. One dead body. One long night ahead.

Elevator Pitch:

In a country where even jaywalking is a crime, two crooks who hate each other have one dead body to deal with and one long night ahead of them.

Production Team:

Director: Kenny Gee
Director of Photography: Shijie Tan
Producer: Dhany Osman

About the Production:

“The Body is a short film involving two crooks, who have to learn to work together to dispose of a dead body. I’ve always wanted to tell a story like that in Singapore, even if it means inventing a Singaporean underworld from scratch.

“Not many films here get made like that—brutal and yet, funny–the kind of film that makes you wonder why you’re smiling when terrible things are happening. I believe my country, which has one of the lowest crime rates worldwide, needs a film like that, but more importantly, it’s just something I’d want to go see.” — Kenny Gee
