We talked about how it’s a great time for film lovers in Singapore last week, especially with international film festivals, outdoor screenings and more hitting our shores soon. Also in the mix is a programme by local film collective 13 Little Pictures, who will be sharing some of their best works for the next five Saturdays at The Projector.
13 Little Pictures was founded in 2009 and since then, we’ve been privvy to some very creative and daring films that have seen success both locally and internationally in places like Berlin, New York, Tokyo, and more. One of the key highlights about 13 Little Pictures: A Programme, is that you can get personal with the collective’s key members during the post-film dialogue session.
Opening this mini-showcase is Tan Bee Thiam and Lei Yuan Bin’s Fundamentally Happy (Jul 16), which tells a story of the consequences of abuse; a film adaptation based on 2006 play by local playwrights Haresh Sharma and Alvin Tan. The Obs: A Singapore Story (Jul 23) follows one of Singapore’s most important and influential bands, The Observatory. Liao Jiekai explores the memories of two hopeless lovers and St. John’s Island’s past in As You Were (Jul 30), which was featured at Singapore’s and Tokyo’s International Film Festivals in 2014. Other films include Lei Yuan Bin’s 03-Flats (Aug 6) and Daniel Hui’s Snakeskin (Aug 13).
