PROGRAM NOTE
The size of the film industry and the number of film productions in Singapore is relatively small, but it has excellent directors. Historically and socially, this multicultural country has gone through a lot of ups and downs, and the conflicts and crashing among different cultures seem to be a resource for the creative movies of Singapore. In succession of the movie 7 Letters, made by seven directors including Eric Khoo, this movie, 667, was made to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the independence of Singapore. The Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre funded the production costs. Under Royston Tan’s planning, five young directors representing Singapore participated in the project. The main motif is the connection to China and Chinese culture that has influenced Singapore economically, socially, and historically. Kirsten Tan acclaimed at many international film festivals in 2017 also participated. The ending credits contain the five directors’ sincerest tribute to the late Kim Ji-seok, Korean Program Director, since he had a good relationship with Singaporean film society. (KIM Young-woo)
