Singapore, Malaysia: the cinema!16 Dec 2009 - 1 Mar 2010
The event is over
every days except tuesdays
Singapore and Malaysia remain areas which are still too neglected on the major map of Southeast Asia. We got to know the cinematographic secrets of their Korean, Thai and Filipino neighbours; as for Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, we are witnessing an exciting renaissance in cinema.
Encouraged by the lightness of the new means of shooting, transformed by the talent of a young generation, as prolific as it is united, underlain by a multi-ethnic social context, a dense history and a complex current policy, this effervescence draws attention to itself by its modernity. It is a matter of urgency that the rhythms and myths of this never-before-seen cinematography are discovered, it is a necessity to delve into its recent past through the heroes and best films of the genre which enriched it and which, for the moment, have never before been seen in Europe.
Far more than a journey, Singapore, Malaysia: the cinema! is a (plural) encounter of those who build our view and our understanding of the world towards an elsewhere, called tomorrow.
