Women in Film - Film Screenings 13 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.

Megane by Naoko Ogigami / 13 November, Friday / 730pm / 106 min / 2004 / PG
Megane tells the story of Taeko, an uptight city woman, vacationing on a quaint Japanese island. Upon arriving at the Hamada Inn, she meets the eccentric inhabitants of the island: Sakura, a mysterious older woman who runs a shaved ice stand on the island during the spring season, but accepts no money; Haruna, a biology teacher who sighs about the lack of cute boys in her class; and Yuji the innkeeper who draws confusing maps and boasts the lack of cell phone reception at his hotel.
