881 Going to the Oscars?

Read in the papers that the movie 881 has been selected as Singapore’s nomination for Best Foreign Film category.  I’m so happy.  Really love the movie.  Although the subject matter is something that is very local and foreign audiences may not be able to appreciate it, i hope they’ll be able to connect to the very simple storyline of friendship & love admist the colourful ‘geitai’ setting.  The movie has its cheesy moments… but i think that adds a fun element to it.  Way to go 881!  881 yo ah yo ah yo!
