SINGAPLURAL is a series of seven film screenings over the semester that brings together past and present final-year projects of NTU’s Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information.
Through this selection of films, we explore Singapore through various perspectives in the hope that it will give us a clearer and more coherent view of what this island means to us.
In each session, we set out to explore a theme through two films. This is followed by a question-and-answer session with the directors and producers of the films and further discussion may be taken online to this site as well.
If you have any questions, comments and suggestions, do contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit http://singaplural.net/ regularly for the latest updates on details about when and where the sessions will be held.
