In a new partnership with Viddsee.com, a Singapore-based distributor of short films, Star2.com Culture presents Asian Shorts, our new weekly series of short films made by filmmakers from across the Asian continent.
The first of our weekly installments is Gift by Singaporean filmmaker Daniel Yam. In this short film, one of Viddsee’s most popular – 7,806,453 views since it was uploaded to YouTube on March 6 – a son confronts the resentment towards his loser of a father only to realise his true intentions.
Words of caution: To say it’s tearjerker is an understatement. You’ll clean out that box of Kleenex in no time.
