The Volkswagen Discovery Award for best first film at this year's
just-completed Toronto Film Festival went to Chicken Rice War, a
Singapore film directed by CheeK. It is said to be a romantic comedy
"loosely inspired by Romeo and Juliet," involving feuding families in
Singapore's chicken rice industry.
