Screenings


Watching Films with C’n’C (Chris and Cain) is the backbone of the screening programme at soft/WALL/studs. The selected films range from long-form documentaries, to the early works of emerging and underground Singaporean film makers.

TheoryFILM is a series organised with Bras Basah Open: School of Theory and Philosophy, often hosted at s/W/s. For each session, a film screening is paired with a speculative theoretical reading for discussion, broadly questioning the ontology of the screen as a distinct mode of perceiving the world.
