This year, the Singapore International Film Festival (SGIFF) returns to National Museum of Singapore with the Classics programme. With a new thematic focus, Secret Spies Never Die!, the programme presents significant spy films and its interesting offshoots from the ‘50s to ‘80s, tracing out a fascinating episode in Asian cinematic history.

From Korean director Hang Hyeong-mo’s The Hand of Fate (1954) to Singapore’s very own Gerak Kilat (1966) by Jamil Sulong and the first Australian-Hong Kong coproduction The Man from Hong Kong (1975), the Festival’s Classics line-up draws attention to the region’s unique storytelling style of the popular cult genre.
Co-presented with the Wee Kim Wee School of Communications and Information, Nanyang Technological University, in celebration of the School’s 25th Anniversary in film and communications studies.

Tickets go on sale at SISTIC.

HistoriaSG: Inside the Japanese Administration of Wartime Singapore [CANCELLED]

To the people of Singapore, the Japanese administration that governed the city during World War Two was arbitrary and cruel. Many local residents, as they did their best to endure the occupation, gave up trying to understand the contradictory messages of the administration. Now, almost eight decades later, the many Japanese documents that survived the occupation allow us a glimpse into the inner workings of the wartime administration.
