Love Conquers All.At the 11th edition of what has become one of the major events held on the Asian continent, our jury focused on the New Currents section devoted to first and second features. Our award went to Love Conquers All by Tan Chui Mui (Malaysia/The Netherlands, 2006) "for its audacious narrative structure and its intelligent work with sound and image."
