Singaplural: Perspectives on an Island (2007)







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:
