A straight and narrow policeman meets a stubborn widower who insists on violating the law.
The grieving widower strikes a forlorn image by the beach, scattering ashes into the sea.
Apprehended by the policeman for not having the necessary permits, they embark on a bureaucratic journey to get the necessary papers.
The Ministry of Death was not compassionate, severely inefficient, and frustrating to deal with.
They had until sundown and were racing against time.
Here’s how they reluctantly bonded in this mission.
Taj’s film premiered at the Moscow International Film Festival and screened at festivals in Colorado, Guam, Singapore, Italy, Glasgow, New Mexico, and in Japan.
Scenes at the Ministry of Death was shot in the abandoned Kallang Airport in Singapore, Taj shares.
“The airport was built in the 1930s, and I love the Art Deco accents in the architecture. It provided the film with a look that is reminiscent of a lot of my favorite Hollywood films from the 1930s and 40s.”
