Director Focus: Jack Neo
Director Focus: Jack Neo by Wong Hongyi
Admission: Entry by donation
This third seminar in the series takes a look at Jack Neo, who is sometimes believed to represent the Everyman in Singapore. His choice to focus on the problems of the masses is arguably the source of his appeal. The issues that he explores may be mundane but many of them are very real. Throughout his filmmaking years, Neo has evolved and developed a bankable formula that works. Some of the films we will watch include Money No Enough, I Not Stupid, Homerun, and Ah Boys to Men.
This series of talks will take a closer look at Singapore cinema by uncovering recurring themes and focusing on the works of several filmmakers. Learn more about how the Singapore identity has shaped our films. and how it has expressed and influenced our perceptions and understanding of the world.
