Interview

A slice of life explored with Shaun Neo

A slice of life explored with Shaun Neo


Happily Ever After (2015) is an experimental narrative directed by Shaun Neo, Apple Ong and Pek Hong Kun. In the East Asian context, the over-emphasis on gathering parents, children and relatives to smile in front of the camera for a family portrait creates this ideal image of what a ‘happy family’ should look like. This portrait, or picture, seems to disregard if we’re ever truly happy. Our idea of happiness, in this instance, is deeply embedded in traditions.
