Anniversary: A short film by Royston Tan & Alfian Sa’at
This short was written in commemoration of World AIDS Day, telling of the story of Wai Kit, the main protagonist, who has a history of promiscuity and involvement in the P&P scene, locally known in Singapore as “chemfun”. He meets someone he used to have sex with during the drug-fuelled orgies who then reveals to him that he recently tested positive for HIV. He is urged to take a test a well.
Wai Kit is now torn and emotionally distressed for he is now in a relationship with a loving boyfriend. He takes a HIV test without his partner’s knowledge. How does he then inform his partner on the results? Does it count as the traditional “gift of paper” to his love? Tearjerker short.
