About Story

Marking his move to shoot a trilogy of gay-themed films, BUGIS STREET was a groundbreaking film for Yonfan. Shot on location in Singapore, Bugis Junction/Bugis Street were long known to locals as the center of the real nightlife there. It was where one could find local transvestites, prostitutes, and transsexuals mixing it up with both Singapore’s high society and underground gay culture together with US sailors and soldiers on military leave. The film features actress HIEP Thi Le in her first role right after her film debut in Oliver Stone’s Heaven and Earth. The film featured and costarred many of the real local characters from Bugis Street. The film also marked Yonfan’s first collaboration with Fruit CHAN who served as screen writer and later went on to become a renowned director in his own right.
