Michael Kam

 

Detour by Michael Kam was the most highly acclaimed film at the Awards, winning Best
Fiction, Best Director, Best Script, and Best Performance. The film is about a taxi driver and
his two bickering young sons. The youngest son later undergoes a traumatic experience that
changes the dynamic between the two brothers forever. This is Michael’s second Best
Director Award; he had previously won the same award for his film Masala Mama at the
2nd SSFA in 2011. In addition to a trophy, Michael received a post-production package
