It’s monsoon season in Singapore and the city is pouring with rain. Wet Season follows the plight of Ling (Yann Yann Yeo), a Chinese language teacher, whose marriage and school life are fraying apart because she is unable to bear a child. But an unlikely friendship with a student helps her reaffirm her identity as a woman. Wet Season is both written and directed by Singaporean filmmaker Anthony Chen, his second feature after making Ilo Ilo previously, and a number of other short films as well. This first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival back in 2019, and also stopped by the Palm Springs and Göteborg Film Festivals last year. Strand will debut Chen's Wet Season direct-to-VOD in the US starting this spring. Visit their website.
