KUALA LUMPUR, May 7 (Xinhua) -- "The Tiger Factory", a Chinese- language film made by Malaysia, has successfully made its way into the 63rd Cannes Film Festival which will be held from May 12 to 23.
The Malaysian filmmaker Woo Ming Jin told a press conference here on Friday that the film will be aired under the "Director's Fortnight" section of the festival.
The art film was shot for 12 days in March, featuring the life of a 19-year-old girl who wanted to go to Japan to work.
Woo said his inspiration of producing the film comes from daily life in Malaysia.
He also said that he wanted to change people's misperception that an art film was usually boring and lacking picture movements.
