Women in Film - Film Screenings 6 Nov, Friday
The Women in Film & Photography Showcase at Objectifs is a tribute to the artists, photographers and filmmakers who have created works that tell stories with impact, break boundaries and inspire us.

In this inaugural edition of Women in Film, selected films from Singaporeans Kirsten Tan and Sun Koh, Thai Pimpaka Towira and Japanese Naoko Ogigami will be featured. Ranging from short experimental films to feature documentaries, the screenings illustrate their unique voices and independent filmmaking spirit. Two films, Roxy and Sussane (dir.

Rent A Cat by Naoko Ogigami / 6 November, Friday / 730pm / 110 min / 2010 / PG
In a corner of the city, a young woman named Sayoko lives alone in a one-story, traditional Japanese house. However, she's not really alone. In every part of the house is a cat, another cat, yet another cat. For some reason cats find her irresistible, so she decides to share her house with them. She passes her time tending to her house, taking care of the family altar of her beloved grandmother, and operating a rent-a-cat business through which she lends her cats to lonely people -- all while enduring the taunts of her bizarre neighbour.
