17 Feb – The teaser trailer for the upcoming Singaporean historical film, "1965" which stars Qi Yuwu, Deanna Yusoff, Joanne Peh, James Seah, Sezairi Sezali, Mike Kasem, and Lim Kay Tong has finally been released.

This drama film is set to bring audiences to observe the history of Singapore where its pioneers had to face the war against racism, and how some of them decided to call the island their home.

The film follows Cheng, a police inspector who struggles to make sure he is doing the right thing even when his daughter gets abducted. The film also explores the rising of racial tensions that separated Singapore from Malaysia.

According to Channel News Asia, the director of the film, Randy Ang had mentioned that he will be doing his best in making the scenes as realistic as possible.

"When we shot the scene where Lee Kuan Yew made a speech announcing Singapore's separation from Malaysia, we couldn't find the same television camera they used at the time so we made a replica from scratch," he said.

He added that he even hired look-alike actors to star in one of his scenes.

The film is expected for cinematic release between July and August this year.
