Alvin Soh has always been passionate about representing the minority groups present in society. His education at The Puttnam School of Film made him realise film was more than just entertainment; it’s also a tool to showcase concerns and issues. His interest in directing has grown extensively since his first project and since then, Alvin has directed more than eight short films during his time in school, including the second year film, Mute and thesis film, Chen Jing. Alvin majors in directing and does a minor in sound. His body of work revolves around the themes of marginalised groups, societal alienation, family and love.
Alvin looks up to works of Ken Loach, a social-realist filmmaker who is known for creating political films that raises or even invites audiences into a social and political awakening. Some of Loach’s work that Alvin strongly admires are Raining Stones, Kes and Carla’s Song. Alvin feels an urgent need to speak up for the marginalised, informing the audience about how policies can shape the lives of ordinary people, and just as easily break them.
