Art as Alternative Voice


Art as Alternative Voice by Wong Hongyi

Admission: Entry by donation

Many times, art is used by the artist to reclaim what has been taken away from the powerless and the marginalised. This seminar looks at how films in Singapore are sometimes a representation of the person in the street with his or her fears and aspirations. In this way, film can be used to validate individuals who are neglected or even rejected by the collective consciousness. Some of the films of younger filmmakers like Boo Junfeng and Kirsten Tan will be featured in this session.

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.
