Trivia

The team shot the film in 2 days.

Not too far from Singapore is New Zealand, where a ‘death positive’ movement was established to help the elderly approach the topic of death positively. The Kiwi Coffin Club formed a part of this purpose. You’d be surprised to know how these elderly are finding peace with death, simply by constructing and decorating their own coffins.
