Talkback at Sinema Old School

You might know by now that Sinema Old School has been playing numerous local features and shorts at its venue, drawing the curious, the fan boys (and girls), and of course, the supporters of local cinema into its screening room. Given that August is the National Day Month, the number of screenings have been ramped up, and you can take a look at the schedule for this month here.

Today I had the pleasure and opportunity to help moderate the Talkback session for Unarmed Combat, written-directed-acted by Han Yew Kwang, and produced by Lau Chee Nien. Both were on hand to field questions from the audience after the screening, and they were at their element in sharing snippets behind the scenes, and providing candid comments. Fans of their 18 Grams of Love will definitely not want to see how they started off!

Given that the movie is available on VCD at all good shops out there, why not catch it instead on the big screen? Having watched the movie in another big-screen outing provided yet another chance of picking up after things I've missed, and I still discover new stuff each time I sit through it. And yes, the tune still stuck to my head!

Sinema Old School showtimes for Unarmed Combat as follows:
August 2, 2008 - 2:30 pm
August 3, 2008 - 6:00 pm
August 10, 2008 - 7:30 pm
August 16, 2008 - 2:30 pm
August 20, 2008 - 6:30 pm
August 23, 2008 - 6:00 pm


And as for tomorrow's Talkback session, join director Tony Kern and producer Genevieve Woo as they present their debut feature film A Month Of Hungry Ghosts, a documentary of our current lunar new year month.

Opening at Sinema Old School and other commercial theatres concurrently, wouldn't you want to make the trip to Mount Sophia instead, since the filmmakers will be present for an interactive Q&A after the screening?

You can read my review of the movie here.
