Freedom Film Festival 2016, Singapore

at-the-projectorFreedom Film Festival 2016 opened yesterday with a good crowd.

The Catholic nuns in Radical Grace left the audience awe struck! Many who came to see the works of Singaporean filmmakers were not disappointed. They were treated to good films and the discussions after the screening were most interesting. Martyn See moderated the Q & A with probing questions – was it accidental that young filmmakers, Claire Low and her team of Heartware chose their subject and what triggered Yeo Kai Wen to make Disappearing Hills.

DJ Chris Ho expressed his love and hate for Singapore in The Naked DJ. He expressed the thoughts of the majority of us Singaporeans who have no guts to admit that we are mainly sheep!

The moving films, Unsilent Potato and A Question for My Father left the audience with much food for thought. AWARE representatives, Chong Ning Qian and Jasmine Ng discussed the issue of rape and molest and the difficulty in resolving cases such as those revealed in the films.

And finally, A Syrian Love Story ended the night with a solemn note of what it is like to live in a country engulfed in civil war.

For computers, it means to start again in safe mode. For us, we hope we can also start again in safe mode. But it's more like re-booting our systems and starting from much needed basics for democracy in Singapore.
