Malaysian director Chiu Keng Guan isn’t a stranger in the local film industry.
With box-office hits such as ‘The Journey’ and ‘Ola Bola’ under his belt, it’s only a matter of time until the Johorean spread his wings overseas.
From Malaysia to China
The critically-acclaimed director made his comeback this year with his first-ever film in China titled ‘On Your Mark’.
The film is produced by the Jiangsu Maoyan Culture Media, Wuxi Cangsheng Film, Tianjin Maoyan Weiying Culture Media, Jiangsu Hao Di Cultural Development, Sports Culture Development Center of the State General Administration of Sports (China Sports Museum) and Astro Shaw.
‘On Your Mark’ tells the tale of a young boy, Xiao Erdong, who aspired to be a marathon runner like his mom.
However, his dreams were put on hold following objections by his father who had concerns about him going blind just like his late mother.
Xiao Erdang was persistent and sneakily trained behind his father’s back, but unfortunately, he had a fall during one of the qualifying rounds which left him blind, making his father’s worst nightmare come true.
Check out the trailer below:
‘On Your Mark’ is set for debut in China on 18 June 2021 but don't worry, it will arrive on our shores soon.
