Women in Film - Film Screenings 31 Oct, Sat
The Women in Film & Photography Showcase at Objectifs is a tribute to the artists, photographers and filmmakers who have created works that tell stories with impact, break boundaries and inspire us. In this edition, we turn our focus to Asia, and will be featuring the works of 25 Asian women photographers and filmmakers.
In this inaugural edition of Women in Film, selected films from Singaporeans Kirsten Tan and Sun Koh, Thai Pimpaka Towira and Japanese Naoko Ogigami will be featured. Ranging from short experimental films to feature documentaries, the screenings illustrate their unique voices and independent filmmaking spirit. Two films, Roxy and Sussane (dir. Kirsten Tan) and Drem of Gerontius (dir. Sun Koh) will have its World Premiere at Women in Film.
All screenings are held at the Objectifs Chapel Gallery. Go to http://www.objectifs.com.sg/women-in-film/ for more information about the programme.
Kamome Diner by Naoko Ogigami / 31 October, Saturday / 730pm / 102 min / 2006 / PG
Approximately 10 hours flight from Tokyo, Finland is the closest European country from Japan. Small, but with a presence, Kamome Diner (Ruokala Lokki)—run by a Japanese woman Sachie—stands in the city’s street corner. The film unfolds at this diner, while highlighting people who are more than eager to give a hand to each other’s vital soul.
