Moving Gods Screening @ 4 March, NLB, 2pm

If you missed the previous screening of Moving Gods in NUS, this is your chance to catch it downtown, at the National Library this Saturday!

Toddycats, Singapore Heritage Society and the National Library Board is proud to present:

Moving Gods
Date: 4 March 2006 (Saturday)
Time: 2pm - 3.30pm
Venue: Imagination Room, Level 5 National Library, 100 Victoria Street

Legend has it when soldiers went to Pulau Ubin to intern a German plantation-owner after the First World War broke out, his unfortunate daughter fell to her death trying to flee. Her remains were interred by locals and a Taoist shrine was dedicated to her. Once tendered by the Boyanese, it now attracts gamblers and fortune seekers from all over Asia.

Director Ho Choon Hiong was drawn to this story, leading to the Find German Girl project, website and documentary. He then adapted Lim Jen Erh's play about the same story, Moving Gods, into a tele-movie of the same name for the Arts Central "Stage to Screen" programme.

Both Choon Hiong's documentary and movie will be screened at this event, along with Curse of Moving Gods, Evelyn Goh's documentary about paranormal incidents encountered during the making of Moving Gods. The screenings will be followed by an audience dialogue with the director.

Mark the date on your calendar and see you there!
