When a headliner-type movie like Palme D'or Best Picture 'Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives', you can expect familiar faces from the film community to come face to face, shoulder to shoulder. Here are some snapshots from the charity premiere on Saturday 15 Jan at the Cathay.

(picture by Colin Teo) I was basically stuttering when I approached the auteur for an autograph, whose films I have watched repetitively on DVD and the big screen.

Looi Wan Ping, one of the photographers of the night and local filmmaker (White Days) is engrossed in his duty. This photo taken by Colin Teo is particularly interesting given the 'motley bunch' effect formed by the people here.
