《恶魔日记》A Fiend’s Diary

A man did not shed a single tear during his mother’s funeral.
He commits an irreversible act, deemed unforgivable under the judicial system.

Witnesses take to the stand, each one’s account as colourful as their personalities, held together by a common thread – the judgement of a man’s soul.

Is this man a lunatic, a sage, a fool, a fiend or a social misfit?

Inspired by the philosophy of absurdism and existentialism, A Fiend’s Diary is the ultimate revelation of a man’s battle against the judicial machine, and his conflict against a seemingly indifferent society.

REVIEWS

“Chong is compelling and the story is effectively conveyed, and it is definitely due to evocative lighting and sound combined with Max Tan’s costume design that supports the actor’s masterful performance.”

“Pushing boundaries”

“Moving in a very disquieting way”
Arts Republic

“Chong is masterful in his character work – like in his other stunning monodrama, the brilliant, personal Roots … what really comes through in A Fiend’s Diary is this aching emptiness you feel radiating from Chong through his solid portrayal of this man who barely emotes, not even in the face of death.”
