As reported by Malay Mail, Malaysian-born, London-based photographer and cinematographer Darius Shu recently made his co-directorial debut at the famous Tribeca Film Festival in New York.
Shu and co-director, Arron Blake, only used GBP 400 (RM 2,000) to shoot His Hands, a low budget short silent film.
â€œMy aim was to prove that we could make something amazing and beautiful for the budget and resources that we have.â€
-Shu told the Malay Mail
Ageism and loneliness are the central message in His Hands.
Shu is also known for his work on Pardaa (2017), Secret Child: The Bridge (2018), and Narcissus Revisited (2019).
This is not the first time His Hands has been highlighted.
Previously, His Hands premiered in Perth at itâ€™s International Queer Film Festival, and even won awards in the UK at the Oniros Film Awards.
