Watch Local Rooftop Screening: Singapore Dreaming
Dir. by Colin Goh & Woo Yen Yen Comedy-Family Drama //
105 min English, Mandarin and Hokkien with English subtitles
Disappointed by his failed dreams, Loh Poh Huat visits his frustrations on his family. So when he wins the lottery, everyone believes the money will deliver them from their struggles. However, Loh dies abruptly and his elaborate and surreal Taoist funeral pitches the family into a battle where the stakes are the very meaning of life itself.
Singapore Dreaming is a poignant yet darkly humorous story which follows the lives of six individuals as they navigate the rapidly changing conditions experienced in today’s modern South-East Asian cities. The winner of three major international awards to date, this “graceful satire about Western capitalism in the East” (Variety) was the highest-grossing independent Singapore film for the past 8 years when it was released.
