TIONG BAHRU at Sydney Film Festival
TIONG BAHRU played to full houses at the Sydney Film Festival in June, after also playing to a capacity audience at Melbourne’s ACMI earlier in the month.
TIONG BAHRU is the 10th of the Civic Life films by Irish filmmakers Joe Lawlor and Christine Molloy, and was filmed on location in Singapore in June 2010.
Starring a cast of 150 volunteers and with a crew headed by leading Singaporean Director of Photography Daniel Low, the film has been described as the visual touchstone of Joe & Christine’s work, “restrained and lavish, formally audacious and sentimental” (Sight & Sound)
Also playing at Sydney Film Festival, in a series of open air screenings at Martin Place, were the top 19 films from the WHERE THE HEART IS competition, a collaboration with DepicT!, the 90 second online film programme from Bristol’s Encounters Short Film Festival.
