Director Focus: Wee Li Lin
Director Focus: Wee Li Lin by Wong Hongyi
Admission: Entry by donation
A prolific filmmaker in her own right, Wee Li Lin is a master of the short film genre. Starting from Norman on the Air in 1997, which won her an award at the Singapore International Film Festival, Wee has been making films that explore the inner worlds of archetypal, localised characters. In this seminar, we take a look at some of these shorts. Lunch Time is about a coffeeshop assistant who fantasises a better life; Holiday features the sudden retrenchment of an average Singaporean man; and Autograph Book talks about the pains of growing up through the eyes of a 12-year-old.
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.
