It's time again for YGR's monthly screening event!! This time we team up with MPH Bookstore in conjunction with World Book's Day.

If you have missed the previous screenings, this is your chance to come catch two short films "Baby The Rain Will Fall" and "The Invigilator". They are the recent works of Manesh Nesaratnam, who is also the director of Your Grandfather's Road project, and he will speak about this project and its current progress.

There will also be a Q & A session with the director on these projects and this would be the best time to also find out how you could collaborate and participate in this project.

About Your Grandfather’s Road:

The purpose of Your Grandfather’s Road project is to create and produce a meaningful feature film by crowd-sourcing ideas from the public. This is done via a dynamic website (www.yourgrandfathersroad.com) which facilitates creative collaboration between a community of public contributors across cyberspace and film industry professionals.

The website functions as a platform to generate, discuss and develop story and character ideas with the public. Parts of the screenplay will then be released to invite suggestions for casts, design, location, music, art direction and cinematography. In this way, YGR is redefining the traditional roles and processes of filmmaking.

Your Grandfather’s Road is an inter-weaved, multiple-plot feature-length movie. It will be shot in mid-2010.


Some background info about the short films:

"Baby The Rain Will Fall"

Baby The Rain Will Fall, a short film by Adrian Loh, co-directed with Manesh Nesaratnam, is about a girl who has a secret and her problems with love. Starring Davina Goh and Alfred Loh, this light-hearted drama takes inspiration from the real-life accounts of a girl with a rare medical condition, in seek of social and self-acceptance.

"The Invigilator"

The Invigilator, directed by Manesh Nesaratnam, is a story about two high-school teachers and their aspirations in the teaching profession. Starring celebrity actors Cheryl Samad, and Tony Eusoff, this film is at once a light-hearted clash of pedagogical perspectives and at the same time an echo of societies’ frustrations with the inadequacies of available education systems.
