667, Omnibus Film By Local Filmmakers, Screens Again This November at the SCCC
To celebrate the latest win of local filmmaker, Jun Chong, whose debut short film Ke《客》, was awarded the Best Asian Short at the 13th Sapporo International Short Film Festival, the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre will be offering film lovers another chance to catch the widely acclaimed omnibus film 667.
Ke《客》 is a 13-minute Hakka short that follows the desperate journey of an elderly woman to find her grandfather’s gravestone before the relocation of Singapore’s only Hakka cemetery, produced by award-winning filmmaker Royston Tan and commissioned by the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre in 2017. 667 includes Jun Chong’s short film, alongside Singapore’s next-generation local filmmakers – Kirsten Tan (Pop Aye), Eva Tang (The Songs We Sang), He Shuming (And The Wind Falls) and Liao Jiekai (Red Dragonflies). The omnibus film tells five stories that trace each filmmaker’s journey in re-discovering their cultural roots and how they make Singapore home.
667 plays at the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre on 17th and 18th November 2018. Tickets are free with pregistration here
