With less than two months to go before she pops, Joanne Peh glowed with bliss of a mum-to-be at the media update of local film 1965 yesterday. Executive producer and co-director Daniel Yun, director Randy Ang, main cast members Lim Kay Tong and Sezairi Sezali also attended the event held at Shaw Lido.

After five years in the making, 1965 will premiere on July 30 to commemorate Singapore’s 50th birthday. Daniel, however, pointed out that the idea for this project was born way before the term “SG50” even existed. The veteran movie maker also emphasised that the film is not meant to be propagandist, a biopic of the late Mr. Lee Kuan Yew (played by Kay Tong) or a documentary.

According to Daniel, 1965 is a dramatic thriller that portrays a turbulent picture of the country’s past which many young Singaporeans only read about in history books. The movie also aims to let viewers have a vicarious experience of the 1960s.

While speaking to the media, Joanne revealed that she found out about her pregnancy halfway through the filming of 1965 in November last year. In the official trailer that was played during the event, the 32-year-old was seen running for her life in one of the riot scenes. “There was a very real fear of tripping and falling because that is one thing I wanted to avoid, especially being in the first trimester [at the time],” she let on.

When asked if her husband Qi Yuwu kept watch over her during the shoot, Joanne replied with a laugh: “He’s not my assistant so he’s not always there.”

Nevertheless, there seems to be another issue that Yuwu is particularly concerned about: Joanne’s footwear. The actress, who was walking around in kitten heels, teasingly shared that her husband was not clued in on her outfit yesterday.
