[SCREENING] National Museum of Singapore Presents WITNESS TO WAR: MEMORIES AND SCREENS
January 13 - January 27
In tracing the historical development from the bombing of Pearl Harbour (1941) to Hiroshima (1945), Memories and Screens will showcase films and narratives from Singapore and Malaya, Britain, Japan, America and Singapore’s regional neighbours, accounting for the diverse yet shared narratives of countries and people that have participated in and witnessed World War Two. This film programme – inspired by the exhibition Witness to War: Remembering 1942 – invites us to reflect upon the ways film across national borders remembers a shared history that continues to shape our reality today. Three of them – Spirit of the Overseas Chinese, Devils on the Doorstep and Three Godless Years – are screening in Singapore for the first time.
The full line-up of feature films and shorts, with their respective dates and times, can be found here.
