Item description for Singapore Cinema by Raphael Millet...

Filmmaking in Singapore has seen a dramatic revival since the 1990s with the success of movies such as Royston Tan's 15, Djinn's Perth, Jack Neo's I Not Stupid, Eric Khoo's 12 Storeys and it continues to be highly active with several new productions this year including I Not Stupid Too, Love Story, Smell of Rain and Singapore Dreaming. Yet, many are only vaguely aware of Singapore's glorious past as a filmmaking hub attracting producers, directors and actors not just from all over the Malay archipelago, but also from China, India and the Philippines. Interest in filmmaking in Singapore began as early as 1926 with a little-known production, Xin Ke, a film about newly arrived Chinese immigrants to Singapore. And it reached its peak with the legendary Cathay and Shaw studios in the post-World War II period. These two giants produced hugely successful Malay films which still resonate with people in the region today -- the films of P. Ramlee including the popular Bujang Lapok series and the cult classic of vampire genre films, the Pontianak series. The recent Singapore cinema industry is also covered in some detail, with comprehensive information on how and why the Singapore filmmaking scene has been transformed, enjoying both critical and commercial success, from the rise of dynamic young filmmakers to the support of organisations such as the Singapore International Film Festival and the Singapore Film Commission.
