Perspectives - Online Screening (VOD)

Description

Can a blind woman feel fear, anger and empathy?

Why do some assume a wheelchair user is automatically intellectually disabled?

Is it possible for someone with very low vision to create beautiful works of art that intimately capture the beauty of human anatomy?

A 'sword' fight. A Ferrari wheelchair. Wires that take on a life of their own. Harmonies of hope.

Part documentary, part theatrical monologue, Perspectives is an exploration about life as Singaporean artists with disabilities. Director Peggy Ferroa weaves a narrative of adventures and experiences living - and making art - with difference.

WATCH THE STORIES...


When Paths Cross – A Monologue by Lim Lee Lee
A blind woman crosses paths – and canes – with an angry man. Should she flee or fight, or can she do more for others?

Wired on Art – Thoughts on Art Making and Life
Visual artist Victor Tan has exhibited all over the world but finds home in a little art studio off Telok Kurau. He shares his thoughts on how sculpting with wire helps him re-examine relationships people have with each other.

A Chair is Still A Chair – A Monologue by Stephanie Esther Fam
What happens when a woman is given a new wheelchair but doesn’t quite connect with it?

See the world through the eyes of a blind woman, take a walk in the shoes of a wheelchair user, and learn how disability brings new perspectives to artmaking. Three stories will set you thinking about who we are as people, in all our wonderous diversity.

‘Perspectives’ is a disability-led film.

Directed by Peggy Ferroa and Michael Chua
Written by Peggy Ferroa, Lim Lee Lee and Stephanie Esther Fam
Starring Lim Lee Lee, Stephanie Esther Fam, Victor Tan, with music by Harmony Community Choir
