Singapore Short Films

Friday, August 8th, 2008 at 7pm - 10pm

Location: Los Altos Public Library

This event is in the past.

Friends of SingaporeConnect,

Our little sister organization NUSEA in the Bay Area is organizing a special treat for us in celebration of the Singapore National Day.   They are screening a collection of internationally acclaimed short films made by Singapore directors at a local library. 


Here are some details of the films and the event:

Singapore GaGa:is a 55-minute paean to the quirkiness of the Singaporean aural landscape. It reveals Singapore's past and present with a delight and humour that makes it a necessary film for all Singaporeans. We hear buskers, street vendors, school cheerleaders sing hymns to themselves and to their communities. From these vocabularies (including Arabic, Latin, Hainanese), a sense of what it might mean to be a modern Singaporean emerges.
Fonzi: Shot in black and white, Fonzi is the modern day Pinnochio, believing that she has a real family in the real world, before being challenged on those beliefs. It's a film on existentialism with a bit of a creepy feel to it, especially when some probing questions were asked.

Sewing Room: by Ang Soo Koon

Santa is here: A stylized documentary on the routine of people living and working on a disposal site in Cambodia.

They call her.... Cleopatra Wang: The film, riding on the success of Hong Kong martial arts films of the era as well as the James Bond craze, details the adventures of a female Interpol agent.


Date/time: August 8th, 2008 (Friday) 7pm

Venue: Los Altos Public Library (13 S San Antonio Road Los Altos)

Free admission


If you have a hankering to watch a Singapore-made film or just want to take in sights and sounds of Singapore on a big screen, swing by and have a good time.
