[Exhibition] Celluloid Void 2: The Lost Films of South East Asia
19 Feb - 27 April 2016
Level 8, National Library Building

Anchored by the twin themes of Confluence and Conflict, Celluloid Void 2: The Lost Films of Southeast Asia returns to project a selection of significant 20th century lost films from Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Cambodia, the Philippines and Thailand through the region's web of upheavals starting from the 1920s.

By charting specific socio-political milestones and reawakening the public’s consciousness through surviving remnants of the films or reconstructed documents, this exhibition acts as a compass to the region’s past by having studied histories and lost films mutually re-inform, reinforce and reimagine each other.
