Southeast Asia’s Hollywood – that was what Singapore was known as during the ‘50 and ‘60s. Over 300 masterpieces were shot and produced in Singapore between the two decades by two major film empires: Cathay-Keris and Shaw. These films have long become time capsules for life back in the day, but are deserving of screen time today, especially when Singapore has gotten the luxury of finding her voice and cultural identity. With film festivals on hold and cinemas still closed, there's no better time to rediscover the magic of Singapore's classics from the comfort of your home – with the help of the city's film community.
