Admission: Entry by donation
One of the forerunners in the Singapore film scene, Eric Khoo has contributed to the growth of the industry significantly. He has also influenced a number of young local filmmakers hoping to make their mark in Singapore and abroad. Many of his films are dark symbolisms of existence in urban spaces. The characters featured in films such as Mee Pok Man, 12 Storeys and Be With Me are edgy, displaced and lonely individuals. The way they cope with their lives serves as a mirror for the rest of us who may be grappling with similar issues. In this final seminar of the series, we round up with Khoo and his works.
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.
