All In Recommends: Mushroom Boys
Posted on October 17, 2020 by All In
Mushroom Boys is a short film about five boys with Down Syndrome, Hong An, Ryan, Mark, Mick and Lennard. These five boys work at Singapore’s Citizen Farm, where individuals with intellectual disabilities work in a supportive environment. At the farm, the boys grow and harvest mushrooms to sell. We see the fruits of their labour when they cook mushrooms for their families, as well as mend their booth and make sales at SG Cares Carnival. Directed by Eric Lin, Mushroom Boys was selected for the BAFTA Student Film Awards in 2019 and Viddsee Juree Awards Singapore – Audience Choice Award in 2020.
