The word ‘renewal’ is seldom distant from the collective Singaporean consciousness. Bringing to mind the age-old national narrative of constant progress and development, where our skills and environment are forever subjected to upgrading, the beginning of each new year also encloses the word within a more personal sphere as we contemplate changes to old habits and come up with new year resolutions.
Come join us at our first Film Club session of the year, which will feature a screening of Tenebrae by Nicole Midori Woodford. This will be followed by a conversation between the filmmaker herself and Singaporean poet, Crispin Rodrigues, who will be reading a poem in tandem with the screening. Besides looking at what is lost and gained when renewal takes place, the discussion will also examine other pertinent questions drawn out by the film – like what, for instance, irrevocably leaves its mark, and how moving images and poetry alike can capture both situational gravitas and the emotions that bubble beneath during processes of renewal.
