An upcoming animated film directed by Singaporean director Eric Khoo (邱金海), which serve as a tribute to Japanese comic-book artist Yoshihiro Tatsumi (辰巳嘉裕 / 辰巳ヨシヒロ). The film is a Singaporean production with Japanese dialogue, and partly narrated by top Japanese theatre actor Bessho Tetsuya (別所哲也). Using elements from Tatsumi’s 840-page autobiographical “A Drifting Life”, and short stories “Hell,” “Beloved Monkey,” “Just A Man,” “Occupied,” and “Good Bye,” the film is partial fiction and partial biography as based on Tatsumi’s own autobiography as brought to life by someone other than Tatsumi. The film will be competing in the Un Certain Regard section at “64th annual Cannes Film Festival”.
