In the Room
Zabaltegi

Eric Khoo's latest film is a tapestry of stories, all of which unfold in a hotel room over several decades. The common thread is sex. That hotel room is Room 27 at the Singapura Hotel, which started out as a ritzy establishment in the 1940s but has, over the decades, lost its sheen of respectability. In that time, Room 27 has felt and experienced - through the individuals who have passed through its doors and made love on its bed - all facets of the human condition: joy, love, fear, compassion, cruelty, depravity and redemption.

BIOGRAPHY

Eric Khoo was the first moviemaker from Singapore to have his films invited to major international film festivals, such as Berlin, Venice and Cannes. He debuted in 1995 with Mee Pok Man, followed by 12 Storeys (1997), Be With Me (2005), and My Magic (2008), which competed in Cannes for the Palme d’Or. In 2011 he released his first animated movie, Tatsumi, which also screened in Un Certain Regard at Cannes and made its North American premiere at the New York Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). He was an Official Jury member at the San Sebastian Festival in 2014.
