From 4 Aug – 28 Oct 2018, two local short films will be screened at The Maritime Experiential Museum as part of our on-going effort to enhance guest experience.
Upon concluding your tour of the museum after passing through the Singapore Gallery, just stroll over to the nearby Explorer 1 room to enjoy these two short films by award-winning local film makers Wee Li Lin and Anthony Chen.
The Perm by Wee Li Lin / 6 min
Soft spoken Carolyn, 12, is on the cusp of the awkward teenage years. About to enter secondary school, Carolyn decides to get a trendy Korean hairstyle to kickstart the fact that she is now of age (within the Singapore school system) to perm her hair. Carolyn’s grandmother assures her that the best place to get the perm done is at grandma’s long time hair salon down the block. But is the salon Carolyn grew up in the right place to undertake this important rite of passage?
The Reunion Dinner by Anthony Chen / 16 min
A short film that explores the evolution of how Chinese New Year has been celebrated over the years.
