I managed to watch 2 films(both Singapore films) from Freedom Film Fest(FFF) this year. They are ‘Said Zahari’s 17 years’ by Martyn See and ‘the four HDB blocks of Siglap’ & ‘Orang Singapura’ by Tay Bee Pin. The organiser had individual post dialogue/Q&A sessions with the film makers after each screenings. Its nice to hear about their experiences, processes, difficulties and their motivations.
You can watched Orang Singapura on Youtube.
‘Said Zahari’s 17 years’ by Martyn See is an interview with former political detainee. Tay Bee Pin’s films are focused on social dimensions.
Here are some books which are on former political detainees.
