Description

MAD ABOUT ENGLISH 


Dir. by Lian Pek 

Documentary // 82 min 
Mandarin and English with English subtitles

Have you ever seen 10,000 students learning English from one teacher – all at the same time? Met a detective whose ‘mission impossible’ is to arrest bad grammar? Seen a 74-year old retiree who thinks nothing of ambushing foreigners on the street so that he can practice his English? Or heard a Chinese policeman speak with a New York Bronx accent? Catch Mad About English!

A hilarious and heartwarming film about the people of China and their rush to learn English for the hosting of the 2008 Olympics.

For the 3rd year running, watch a series of made-in-Singapore feature films at the rooftop open-air garden at Objectifs. Watch Local is an initiative by the Singapore Film Commission and industry to drive local appreciation and support of Singapore films. Register early to avoid disappointment!
