Read the films’ synopses below.
The four films featured are:
Brown Sugar (PG) | Director: Jonathan Chong | Drama | Mandarin with English subtitles | 20min
Without Daniel, Kaelyn felt that she had become a shadow waiting to fade with each and every sunrise. Without Daniel, her hands shivered and her thoughts stilled to a deafening silence. Decidedly, she would wait, but for how long? Decidedly, this is not a story about overcoming odds. This is a story about closure. The poem to be finished is not about loss, not entirely, but it is about the one thing that Kaelyn and Daniel believed in: Love.
Good Morning 60 (PG) | Director: Samantha Wee | Drama | English | 14min
Peter Pang has just turned 60 and all he can see is doom ahead. Birthday woes get turned around however after a surprise encounter with Bhangra (a form of Indian dance) injects Peter with a newfound zest for life. Through the magic of this dance, Peter attempts to get his life back on track and to rekindle lost sparks with his wife.
Madam Chan (PG) | Director: Wilson Yip | Comedy-Drama | Cantonese, Mandarin Chinese with English subtitles | 20 min
Filled with endless gripes about her familial troubles, Madam Chan joins her friends the Wongs on a local senior citizens’ tour of Singapore, uninvited and much to the annoyance of Mr Wong. As the group travels from one tourist spot to another, the truth behind Madam Chanâ€™s complaints slowly emerges.
Red Rose (PG) | Director: Ric Lum | Black Comedy | English with English subtitles | 20min
Red Rose is an action short film set in an alternate universe of the East Asian Financial Crisis that never comes to an end. After a young man loses what he owns, he sets about to regain what he lost; encountering people in his journey who teach him self acknowledgment and forgiveness. As he journeys through, he slowly realizes that things are not what they seem to be.
