YesAsia Editorial Description

After making a splash at the International Critics' Week with his 2010 debut feature Sandcastle, Singapore director Boo Junfeng returned to the Cannes Film Festival in 2016 with Apprentice, which screened in the Un Certain Regard sidebar. Bringing audiences into the inner workings of a maximum security prison, the introspective drama explores the psyche and conflicts of a young executioner's assistant who is grappling with his choice of profession and his relationship with his seasoned mentor.

Soon after transferring to the state's maximum security prison, correctional officer Aiman (Firdaus Rahman) meets and befriends chief executioner Rahim (Wan Hanafi Su). In need of an assistant and a successor, Rahim takes Aiman under his wing as an apprentice. Aiman's new position greatly strains relations with his sister as their own father was executed years ago, but he persists with the training. However, he begins to question his decision when he witnesses firsthand the grueling significance of taking a life and his family background comes to light.

Product Information

Following his acclaimed 2010 debut feature Sandcastle, Singapore filmmaker Boo Junfeng examines the emotional costs and consequences of capital punishment in his stirring sophomore effort, the psychological prison drama Apprentice. Malay correctional officer Aiman is transferred to a maximum security prison where Rahim has served as the chief executioner for three decades. Noting Aiman’s interest in his work, Rahim earmarks the junior officer as a potential successor and asks him to become his assistant. Aiman, however, has a complicated relationship with the prison and the death penalty: Can Aiman overcome his conscience and a haunted past to take over as the next chief executioner?
