At Death’s Door: Boo Junfeng’s Apprentice

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


    Singaporean director Boo Junfeng's sophomore, un certain regard-screening feature depicts a young prison guard's developing relationship with the penitentiary's chief executioner. With its desolate, menacing jail setting, 'Apprentice' also captures the human preoccupation with mortality and morality, particularly in light of the still-contentious death penalty.
