Singapore Shorts Home

Curated on a theme of the Family, the second anthology of Singapore Shorts is a selection of nine films, made between 1974 and 2007, from the Asian Film Archive Collection. Showcased in this DVD are acclaimed works of Singapore filmmakers. Through these films which have never been available on DVD yet, we hope the different facets of the Singapore society and family can be explored and better understood from these insightful and edifying angles. The Singapore Shorts Anthology is also a fundraising effort to support the preservation and cultural mission of the Archive.
