As a city-state, Singapore offers a unique perspective to examine the dynamic dialogue between cinema and the city. This talk focuses on contemporary Singapore cinema and the manner in which filmmakers image, imagine, and engage with the city-scape to explore constructions of the nation.
Sophia Siddique Harvey obtained her Ph.D. in Critical Studies from the University of Southern California in 2001. She has taught courses in Asian Horror, Southeast Asian Cinema, and Ethnographic Field Methods and is currently working on her first book on contemporary Singapore cinema.
