2nd Singapore Indie Doc Fest: Seletar Airbase – Singapore’s Secret Garden @ The Substation Theatre

Seletar Airbase has been written up in the media several times now as a budding new bohemian neighbourhood, but that hasn’t stopped the government from announcing that it will be turned into an aerospace industrial hub by 2015. Is there still time to save this unique corner of Singapore? Li Xiuqi, the filmmaker behind Seletar Airbase – Singapore’s Secret Garden, certainly hopes so.

Seletar AirbaseThis short film takes us into the heart of the Seletar airbase neighbourhood as it is today, thriving with both human activity and pockets of wildlife. Watch it at the Substation‘s 2nd Singapore Indie Doc Fest on March 6 at 7:30 pm and catch a glimpse of a slice of Singapore life that’s at the mercy of “modernisation”. Tickets are $7 ($5 concession) and available from Gatecrash.
