To bring audiences closer to the film, Junfeng will present a 2-day exhibition that will share his filmmaking journey, from production notes when he was conceptualising the film’s plot in its early stages, to the film’s costumes. The centrepiece of the exhibition will be the hangman’s lever, a crucial prop in the film that symbolises the internal struggle of the main protagonist, Aiman.

During the opening and the exhibition, the DVD will be available to purchase at a special promotional price of $28 (usual price $30) only at Objectifs.
Following the launch, the Apprentice DVD will be available at the following retailers:
• Objectifs
