All Set for Joshua Tapes' 'Road Trip' at GSC
SEPT 12, 2010 - Local indy film director Benji Lim says it's "all systems go" for the opening of his 'new' film, The Joshua Tapes, on September 30, exclusively at GSC cinemas.
He told this blogger that the media screening is slotted for Monday Sept 27 at MidValley at 10.30am and the premiere on Sept 29, the eve of the release. "The invites to the media should be out soon," he said.
The Joshua Tapes, which was shot in peninsular Malaysia in June 2008, is directed by Arivind Abraham and Benji Lim who also served as writer and cameraman. Benji also has a Hitchcock-style cameo in the movie - as do yours truly in a 'walk-in-walkout' role that viewers will miss when they so much as blink.
The plot is about three close friends who set off on a road trip to the East Coast that takes them through the heartland of Malaysia. However, as their journey takes a series of unexpected turns, their inner demons close in on them.
The bonds of friendship that hold the boys together are tested to breaking point, leading them down a road of self-discovery. The Joshua Tapes is a story of friendship and redemption, and of how the search for these things sometimes hurt, but ultimately heals them all.
The movie stars Baki Zainal (of NTV7's Mr. Siao's Mandarin Class), Phoon Chi Ho (of comedy trio, MACC a.k.a. Malaysian Association of Chinese Comedians), Matthew Ho Tien Li, Alfred Loh as Joshua, and NTV7 newscaster Grace Ng Fei Fen.
