Women in Film - Film Screenings 7 Nov, Sat
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 edition, we turn our focus to Asia, and will be featuring the works of 25 Asian women photographers and filmmakers.
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. Kirsten Tan) and Drem of Gerontius (dir. Sun Koh) will have its World Premiere at Women in Film.
All screenings are held at the Objectifs Chapel Gallery. Go to http://www.objectifs.com.sg/women-in-film/ for more information about the programme.

Ray Courtney is a single, 30-something semiconductor engineer in a town somewhere in east coast of North America. His Japanese-American mother passes away, and like the protagonist of Albert Camus' The Stranger he shows little emotion at the funeral. But soon his quiet, solitary life is turned upside-down when he ends up moving in with his older brother Maury, once a brilliant pianist and now a victim of panic disorder who never leaves the house; his younger sister Lisa, a university student who tends to look down her nose at everyone; and his grandmother Baachan, who was called over from Japan by her daughter and speaks no English.
