Singapore Film: What is It?


Singapore Film: What is It? by Wong Hongyi

Admission: Entry by donation

This introductory seminar to the 5-part series will look at Singapore film through a number of identifiable themes and concepts. Ideas like memory, nostalgia, space, identity and the use of Singlish in some of our local films will be examined with examples from various Singaporean filmmakers. A good place to start is the omnibus 7 Letters, itself a part of the numerous initiatives of SG50 and an attempt to look at how Singapore has changed across our five decades of nationhood.

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.
