This programme is included as part of the shnit – OUT OF CURIOSITY segment. The session will be moderated by Ramasamy Rajesree, Guest Curator ““ Sinema Showoff! Series.

From Europe to South America, and for it’s first time in Asia, Singapore is privileged to be able to screen these films alongside with other participating countries such as Cape Town, Cologne and Vienna!
