NTU final-year film projects on Arts Central

Sinema.sg reports that Arts Central will be broadcasting NTU final-year film projects in February and March. Good that Mediacorp is supporting.

I’d like to highlight Singapore Standard Time (13 March!). A documentary comprising seemingly randomly juxtaposed interviews, it’s close in terms of style and concept to Tan Pin Pin’s excellent Singapore GaGa (now out on DVD).

The documentary gets a bit blatant towards the end with a sequence of frantic cross-cuts between Ivan Heng (who is the consummate showman) and the government botanist. But that detracts little from the overall quality of the work, especially when you consider the youth of the documentarians.
