Curated by Singaporean filmmaker Jeremy Chua, “Still Somehow, It’s Illusions We Recall” will showcase a selection of films reflecting the current state of unprecedented disruption and isolation. Running from 1 October to 4 November 2021, the film programme features exclusive regional premieres, including the anticipated arthouse anthology film The Year of the Everlasting Storm.
Joining the lineup are Alexandre Koberidze’s What Do We See When We Look at the Sky?, C.W. Winter and Anders Edström’s The Works and Days (of Tayoko Shiojiri in the Shiotani Basin), and Un Regard Certain winner Michel Franco’s Sundown.
The short film section of “Still Somehow, It’s Illusions We Recall”, consisting of works by multidisciplinary artists Elysa Wendi, Min-Wei Ting and Robert Zhao over the past two years, will touch on the fragility of living in the physical or natural world, with each film meditating on the subconscious reality of life in Singapore. These short films will be screened for free every weekend until 31 October at the National Gallery Singapore.
Full details of their schedules and ticket sales for the feature-length films are available from the Singapore Art Museum website.
“Still Somehow, It’s Illusions We Recall” is presented in conjunction with the Singapore Art Museum’s ongoing exhibition, The Gift. Focusing on the nature of relations, affinities and influences through the act of gifting, the exhibition is now running till 7 November 2021.
