Perspectives Film Festival is Singapore’s first and longest student-run film festival. This year’s lineup features films that have been released from 2019 onwards by emerging filmmakers, each with their unique takes that align with this year’s theme: Truth.
Stemming from the idea of multiple perspectives, this year’s theme delves into the various interpretations of truth by filmmakers from around the world. The films touch on timely topics surrounding issues in politics, societal structures, personal and national histories, and the media.
FEELS GOOD MAN is a documentary about how artist Matt Furie’s anthropomorphic Pepe the Frog was distorted into a viral symbol for the controversial American alt-right movement. Witness the fractious reunion of a family torn apart by war and time with the film FAREWELL AMOR by exploring how an immigrant family reknits itself in an alien
land through multiple perspectives.
A THOUSAND CUTS takes us behind the lens of Philippine online news outlet Rappler
as its journalists battle censorship to expose the violent realities of Duterte’s controversial war on drugs. In VIDEOPHOBIA, a young Korean-Japanese woman must learn to navigate the permanence of digital data in our reality as the unwitting star of a sex tape.
