Filmmaking in Singapore has seen a dramatic revival since the 1990s with the success of movies such as "15", "Perth", "I Not Stupid" and "12 Storeys", and continues to be highly active with several new productions this year. Millet's "Singapore Cinema" seeks to place Singapore in its rightful context as a filmmaking hub attracting producers, directors and actors not just from the Malay archipelago, but also from China, India, and the Philippines. "Singapore Cinema" starts with the 1926 little-known production of "Xin Ke", a film about newly arrived Chinese immigrants, through its peak with the legendary Cathay and Shaw studios in the post-WWII period, and on to the rise of dynamic young filmmakers and the Singapore International Film Festival of today.
