Oct 7 Indonesian action thriller "Headshot"
comes to the Busan International Film Festival in South Korea
this week, bringing the story of a man who awakens from a coma
and faces his past to the South Korean movie event.
Mike Wiluan, a producer on the film and chief executive of
Singapore-based Infinite Studios, said the film was garnering
attention for its "beautiful physical violence".
"'Headshot' is not a proven success, it's definitely a
sensation. I think people are talking about it because there's a
real desire for a new form of action, of physical violence that
is beautiful to watch," he said.
Wiluan, whose company has provided production services for
international films, said he also hoped for more collaborations
between Asia and the West in making movies.
"I think what we always want to aspire to is to be able to
co-produce with them as well and...bring Asian stories to the
West," he said.
