Kino Lorber: "POP AYE" [DVD]


Kino Lorber is proud to announce that Kirsten Tan's award-winning Pop Aye is now available on DVD.  A winner of both the World Cinema Dramatic Special Jury Award for Screenwriting at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and the Big Screen Award at the Rotterdam International Film Festival, Pop Aye was a hit with critics and festival audiences alike, and was selected by Singapore as the country's Official Submission to the 90th Academy Awards.

Pop Aye was released theatrically by Kino Lorber earlier in 2017, with a two-week run at New York's Film Forum and engagements in key national markets including Los Angeles, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Chicago, and Seattle.


Pop Aye is a heartwarming tale of a man and his elephant. A successful Bangkok architect in the midst of a midlife crisis is reunited with an elephant he knew growing up. The two embark on a road trip to the man's childhood home in the idyllic Thai countryside. Along the way, they meet a colorful cast of characters that includes a pair of nonplussed local police officers, a forlorn transgender sex worker, and a mysteriously wise drifter. As the encounters mount and the bond between man and elephant deepens, filmmaker Kirsten Tan weaves a strikingly universal tale in this feature debut that won prizes (and hearts) at the Sundance and Rotterdam Film Festivals.
