  • Documentary

    Behind Closed Doors is a project on people living in rental flats in Singapore. It aims to unravel stories of seemingly average Singaporeans living behind these compartmentalised units that looks the same on the outside, but we only realise their differences when we step into these units.

    The main message of the video "Visible but unidentifiable, there's more than meets the eye" aims to emphasize on how average these Singaporeans are, but there's more than we can see until we actually take an extra step to talk to these Singaporeans and understand their stories.

    Passing Through

    Written & directed by Gina Chew, the film is about how we move in and out of each other in life - often never making solid connections or touching base.

    Filmed & edited by Joo Hwee, she uses handheld shots & a pastel hue to represent the dream-like world for the guy, contrasted by the still shots with a cooler tone to show a world where individuals cope with their own struggles. This segment of the film is inspired by Wong Kar Wai's Chungking Express.
