Vivian Huang of Asian CineVision, sponsor of the Asian American International Film Festival of New York, calls it "Singapore fever." She is referring to the success of Eric Khoo's Meepok Man on the international film festival circuit and to the interest this film has generated in motion pictures coming from the island nation of Singapore. After being dormant for decades, Singapore's cinema culture has begun to heat up.
