I apologise for the lack of updates on Zombiepura. We’ll be announcing something really soon. But meanwhile, I’d like to direct your attention to RUBBERS, a sex comedy by Han Yew Kwang, starring Golden Horse Award winner Yeo Yann Yann.
Rubbers: Yeo Yann Yann tries to seduce a plumber (Mature content)
Tired of the same old Singapore movies? Rubbers is a very daring project by one of my favourite Singapore directors, Yew Kwang. Having personally worked on this shoot, I can assure you that you will be shocked at what actors like Yann Yann, Alaric Tay, Oon Shu An and Marcus Chin ‘sacrificed’ for Rubbers! It is definitely a daring and hilarious film that needs your support. Check out the Rubbers Indiegogo page now and be a part of this groundbreaking movie.
Zo Gang was screened in a lecture in Tokyo, Japan. I couldn’t help but ask for photos of the Japanese subtitles:
How cool is that! Here’s feedback from Ms Konno, staff of Open University of Japan.
“She and her children love small ‘explosion’ and that Merlion Tan became a tea man at the end is very funny that they could watch this film many times. Each time she watches she discovers something new and she laughs.”
Singaporeans always have this inferior mindset that our local art cannot be understood overseas. To me, it’s like saying we can’t understand a French film because it’s in French. Hello, ever heard of subtitles? All stories and art are universal. Just look at K-pop, Singaporeans listen to K-pop without even understanding what they are singing about. I’ve said this at a Q&A before: I hope Singlish will be the new K-pop someday!
Thanks also to Matsushita Yumi for arranging the screening.
Lions All The Way is featured on football website, Goal.com. Click here to read the full article. Here’s why I love REAL football matches:
“In a football match, you can capture all sorts of emotions – happiness, sadness, anger, disgust, surprise, joy. It’s great to see Singaporeans show their passion for the country, and at a football game it’s real and unrehearsed.”
Shot an impromptu film with my mobile phone and it has since gathered nearly 30,000 views! National Conversation: A film montage of colourful banners and quirky Singaporeans. On 16 Feb 2013, Singaporeans gathered at Hong Lim Park to protest against overpopulation.
Spot the TAK GIU dvd? For his latest exhibition, artist Kent Chan watched all the 700 films shown under The Substation’s Moving Images programme in the last 15 years. Glad he survived! =)
Sindie says: Almost every film submission to that came to the Substation over the last 10 years arrived in humble copy DVDs with handwritten labels. Here are 9 local titles that came in the same humble packaging but shone brighter than the gleam on the silver or bronze finishing of the DVDs. In another 10 years, we may see them in the museum.
Read here for an interview about the exhibition ‘Temporary Repositories’. Tak Giu (Kick Ball) can be watched online, or buy the Hosaywood DVD to support us.
LIONS ALL THE WAY captures the fans, passion and atmosphere at the Suzuki Cup Final 2012, where Singapore beat Thailand 3-1 at the Jalan Besar Stadium.
In recent times, a new breed of Singapore fans have emerged: Young, passionate and energetic. They stand and sing throughout the whole match. They wave their scarves in choreographed motions. They have a song for every player. They form a giant Singapore flag with their placards (called a ‘tifo’). They have a dream that Singapore football support will reach the epic atmospheres of European & South American stadiums. And they invite you to join them.
