Description


NEW WAVES
Emerging Voices of Southeast Asian Cinema
New Waves shines a spotlight on young filmmakers who are making waves through the archipelago, forming an emerging community within Southeast Asia. Join them in a series of dialogues with Singaporean artists, writers and curators from different disciplines, as they recollect their entrance into cinema, their unique and personal approaches to utilising film as a mode of expression, and its convergence with other art forms and everyday life. Come participate in these open dialogue sessions to find out more about this emerging community of filmmakers in anticipation of the 28th edition of the Singapore International Film Festival end-2017.

New Waves is a programme by the Singapore International Film Festival, with Programme Partner *SCAPE.

A WAY OF LIVING: FILMIC ITERATIONS OF JAVANESE THOUGHT
Wregas Bhanuteja In dialogue with Jeremy Fernando
31 MAY 2017, WED / 8:00PM / 90 MIN
Situated within the intersections between fiction, documentary form and personal ruminations, Wregas Bhanuteja has been exploring Javanese mythology and folk practices through the vantage point of his hometown Yogyakarta. His celebrated short film In the Year of Monkey won the Best Southeast Asian Short Film at the 27th SGIFF Silver Screen Awards 2016, and he has just begun pre-production for his first feature.

As explored through Wregas' films and the musings of philosopher and writer, Jeremy Fernando, this session will bring us through the intersections and parallels between Javanese and French thought. In particular, it will unpack the Javanese idea of Nrimo, a way of looking at life and living which informs the philosophical core of Wregas' ouevre, and the attitude and approach he harbours as a filmmaker.

He is currently working on a script for his first feature film project.


Jeremy Fernando is the Jean Baudrillard Fellow at the European Graduate School, where he is also a Reader in Contemporary Literature & Thought. He works in the intersections of literature, philosophy, and the media; and has written eighteen books - including Reading Blindly, Living with Art, Writing Death, and in fidelity.
