24 Jun (Sun): FREE screening of 'Ubin, Sayang' at Pulau Ubin

Specially for Pesta Ubin and Ubin Day. Mark your calendar! The first public screening at Pulau Ubin! 'Ubin, Sayang' is a gorgeous film by Rachel Quek and her team about the people of Ubin and the Restore Ubin Mangroves (R.U.M.) Initiative. Come for the screening and chat with Rachel after that.
'Ubin, Sayang' traces the journey of Xiao Ting as she learns from the stories of mangrove restoration and kampong living. In the context of modern Singaporean nostalgia for the kampong, the film brings together different perspectives on what the kampong spirit truly entails, and discusses its implications for us today.
