Runtime: 88 min
Language: Malay with English subtitles
Azam, a musician, returns to his village after many years. He reunites with his childhood best friend, Ali, and his wife Minah. During a late-night fishing trip, they reminisce about their childhood, old village folktales and shared stories on love and loss, but tiptoe around the reasons for Azam’s long absence. Towards the end of the night, Minah demonstrates holding her breath under water for three minutes. Azam claims he can do the same but never resurfaces.
Supported by the Asian Cinema Fund and Hubert Bals Fund, Tan Chui Mui released Year Without A Summer in 2010. It was awarded a Special Mention (Cinema of the Future) at the 2011 (13th) Buenos Aires International Festival of Independent Cinema.
