Royston Tan’s ‘3866’ Is His First Film in Seven Years

Royston Tan's '3688.'

The Singaporean director is known for his hit films named after numbers: “15,” “4:30,” “881,” “12 Lotus,” and now, “3866,” which was released in 2015 and was a box office hit in Singapore. The film played at CAAMFest to San Francisco audiences in March.

According to the CAAMFest synopsis: “Joi Chua stars as 38-year-old Fei Fei, named after her late idol Feng Fei-Fei. A former amateur singer turned parking lot attendant (or “summon auntie”), she often suffers at the hands of co-workers for being too lenient in her role. When her father — a retired Rediffusion salesman — is diagnosed with dementia, Fei Fei signs up for an American Idol-style singing competition with a large cash prize at stake.

It stars Joi Chua, Michael Tan, Rahimah Rahim, Liu Lingling and Shigga Shay — and boasts a catchy soundtrack.

The theme song “念,” sung by Joi Chua, and Shigga Shay’s rap song “Tapau” topped the music charts in Singapore.
