The Women in Film programme sees the Singapore premieres of four international feature films and a free short film programme. From the ambitious anthology film Waru depicting eight Maori women’s perspectives on child abuse, to the intimate documentary On Her Shoulders profiling 23-year-old Nadia Murad, a survivor of genocide and of sexual slavery by ISIS, this year’s selected films demonstrate both the potential and perils of community and visibility, and the healing that collective power can make possible.
Each feature film is followed by a post-screening discussion that seeks to foster conversation about the issues depicted and to contextualise them for local audiences. Moderators for these sessions are drawn from beyond the world of film, and include writers Alfian Sa’at and Balli Kaur Jaswal, and social justice advocate Christina Liew.
