Shoki is part of an exciting breed of new wave directors coming out of Singapore. Fresh out of film school, and his films have already gathered accolades from world-class film festivals in Cannes and Busan.

Of Chinese and Japanese parentage, Shoki instinctively understands the complexities behind what makes people who they are, and tells their stories with a tender approach that is insightful and authentic. His sensitivity is matched with a boldness in vision; a strength that he draws from to create thoughtfully-crafted narratives and concepts with refreshing originality and perspective.
