In response to PLACE.LABOUR.CAPITAL, NTU CCA Singapore will present a selection of films from the Asian Film Archive (AFA) with a focus on independent cinema from Southeast Asia. The launching session will feature the first part of Sherman Ong’s film Flooding in the Time of Drought (Singapore, 2009). This docu-narrative fusion depicts the lives of foreign immigrants as they face an impending water crisis. Touching on issues as diverse as ethnic discrimination, ritual beliefs, World War II, and racial tensions in post-’97 riots Indonesia, the film explores how ingrained problems are transported along with migrant communities.
The film will be introduced by Thong Kay Wee, a film programmer and an independent moving image artist based in Singapore currently working with Asian Film Archive (AFA).
Part 2 is scheduled for Thursday, 4 June, 7.30pm and it will be screened in the presence of the artist.
