A colloquium with Sophia Siddique Harvey, Visiting Professor, UCLA Southeast Asian Studies Interdepartmental Program
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.
