New Waves shines a spotlight on young filmmakers who are making waves through the archipelago, forming an emerging community within Southeast Asia. Join them in a series of dialogues with Singaporean artists, writers and curators from different disciplines, as they recollect their entrance into cinema, their unique and personal approaches to utilising film as a mode of expression, and its convergence with other art forms and everyday life. Come participate in these open dialogue sessions to find out more about this emerging community of filmmakers in anticipation of the upcoming 27th edition of the Singapore International Film Festival.
Truong Minh Quy [Vietnam]: Into the Forest
(In dialogue with Jennifer Teo)
A prominent voice from South Vietnam, Truong Minh Quy’s films deal with both his country’s and his own personal histories, the disjuncture between urban and rural space, and an intimate relationship with natural landscapes where he invests his desire of things past and future. Joined by Jennifer Teo from Post-Museum who has mounted a series of community and art projects in Bukit Brown, both guests will discuss what it means when we enter a forest. This session includes the screening of Min-Quy’s short films, Someone is Going to Forest and Mars in the Well.
