Singaplural: Perspectives On An Island



What does Singapore mean to us?

Through a series of seven film screenings at the rooftop of the Wee Kim Wee School Of Communication and Information held in 2007, my friends and I challenged viewers to think about this island by looking at it from different perspectives provided by the films.

All the films screened were past final-year projects by former students and we also managed to invite some of the directors back for a question-and-answer session. You can hear some of the interviews here.

As part of the screenings, the following films were shown:

We explore what it means to be Singaporean
Radio Station Forgot to Play My Favourite Song (2003)
In a Spo[r]t (2007)

Sin City
We ask if Singapore is really such a “clean” city
Waking Up  (2005)
The Last Flight of the Red Butterflies (2003)

Singapore’s Others
