Eric KHOO Kim Hai

Singaporean film director

Eric Khoo started his film career with a number of award-winning short films. But it wasn’t until 1995, with his first feature film, Mee Pok Man, that he finally put Singapore on international critics’ radar. The film picked up prizes at festivals in Fukuoka, Pusan and Singapore. It also turned out to be a sleeper hit at the box office and revived an interest in filmmaking in Singapore.
