Singaporeans to paint Berlin red and white and pink! – Asian Hot Shots Berlin 2010
The Asian Hot Shots Berlin Festival for Film and Video is here again. This year, the spotlight is on Singapore films with the likes of “The Blue Mansion” by Glen Goei, “Here” by Ho Tzu Nyen etc.
Mathias Ortmann, a guest writer for SINdie and sinema.sg, curated this year’s crop of Singapore films at this festival.
“It is more of a societal and a cultural fact that Singapore simply is too rush when it comes to projecting an image or to define it. And this reflects in the films we see.”
“If people paid more attention to natural growth and the time it takes to evolve and to mature, I think this would be the key to seeing more developed works emerge,” said Ortmann.
