THE DRUM (Newly Commissioned!)

Dir. Ler Jiyuan

'The Drum' follows the journey of Kang (Wang Yuqing), a recently retired man in his 60s dealing with the sudden onset of a later-life crisis. Through his journey, he learns that he must mend old conflicts and accept his new life, or risk losing himself in the emptiness of old age.

A boy comes home one day to take a bath, only to find out that his unit’s water supply has been cut. Desperate for water, he drops by his upstairs neighbour, an elderly Malay woman with a fondness for making kueh and listening to music. 'Bunga Sayang' is one of the seven short films in the '7 Letters' anthology produced in 2015 in celebration of SG50.

SPRING AGAIN (Newly Commissioned!)

Dir. Ray Pang

2016 | Singapore | Drama/ Music | 11min | In Mandarin and Teochew with English subtitles | PG

'Spring Again' is a romantic short film about a retired old lonely man, Tan, who goes out to find love again. While out on a date, he realises that wooing a lady is not as easy as it seems. Putting in 110% of effort, Tan steps up his game to impress.


Dir. Gladys Ng

2015 | Singapore | Drama/Family | 15 min | In Mandarin with English subtitles | G

The preoccupations of modern life allow Ying to only come home late in the night, where dinner prepared by her father, awaits. What builds up is a portrait that magnifies in its minutiae of her father’s daily life, as well as the nuances of Asian familial love. 'My Father After Dinner' was presented the Best Singapore Short award at the 26th Singapore International Film Festival in 2015, and was screened as part of the Opening Film at the Singapore Chinese Film Festival in 2016.


Dir. Kelvin Tong

2015 | Singapore | Drama/Comedy | 18 min | In Mandarin and dialects with English subtitles | PG

A young boy and his family travel to Johor each year during Qing Ming to pay respects to his late grandfather. The boy’s grandmother has the ritual of describing the changes in Singapore to her late husband every single visit, much to her family’s frustration. However, during one visit, the family’s attitude is changed by the boy’s actions. 'Grandma Positioning System' is one of the seven short films in the '7 Letters' anthology produced in 2015 in celebration of SG50.
