ATxSG 2022, 01: Covid effects result in lower participation, media gets the axe

ATxSG 2022, 01: Covid effects result in lower participation, media gets the axe It was where it began, for me. The location this year was neither the top-of-the-line Marina Bay Sands Exhibition Centre nor the centrally located Suntec City. AsiaTechxSingapore (ATxSG), the new avatar of CommunicAsia, moved back to Singapore Expo, where I had first visited it, some 25 years ago. Though a standard exhibition and conference venue, it just cannot compare with Marina Bay Sands. As an add-on, rooms i...

Dilli Kaand, Review: Those that rape and those that gape

Dilli Kaand, Review: Those that rape and those that gape When a film is delayed six years in its release, its fate is more or less sealed. Dilli Kaand was launched in August 2015 and sees the light of day on 24 September 2021. Of course, the delay of the last 18 months can be attributed to the Covid 19 Coronavirus pandemic, when cinema-halls remained shut, but the six-year delay cannot be explained by Covid. Even now, cinema halls have only opened in some states of India, with conditions impo...

Tashi, made with a 5-member cast and a 5-member crew, for $25,000, proves auspicious

Tashi, made with a 5-member cast and a 5-member crew, for $25,000, proves auspicious Tashi means 'auspiciousness' or 'good fortune' in the Tibetan language, and the first time I heard this word was when I was introduced to an actress from the north-east of India, with this name. This time, I find it to be the name of a film, made by a Keralite Indian woman, living in Singapore. The film has been shown at 14 festivals and has won 11 awards, so far. That sure is auspicious, by a...

16th Third Eye Asian Film Festival: XI

16th Third Eye Asian Film Festival: XI Sixteen years is a long time in the life of a film festival. It seems an even bigger achievement when you consider the upheavals that the Third Eye Asian Film Festival has undergone during its tenure. In fact, it is a miracle that it has continued, against all odds. Asian Film Foundation, headed by Kiran Shantaram, son of late V. Shantaram, remains the driving force, as does Sudhir Nandgaonkar, journalist and a bunch of teenage students pool in their res...

Tom Alter: Actor, Cricketer, Urdu lover and Caucasian

Tom Alter: Actor, Cricketer, Urdu lover and Caucasian Unlikely combination of professions and hobbies for a man named Thomas Beach Alter, who hailed from a family of American missionaries. His acting abilities were never in doubt, and the barest accent betrayed his ethnicity. But his skin and hair distinguished him from other Indian co-actors quite noticeably, and he had to be content with parts showing him as a British colonial or modern day baddie. There were occasions when he was made to s...

Day 2 at [SIN]efest - 881 dir Royston Tan

Day 2 of the first edition of [SIN]efest was somewhat a quieter affair than the previous day's opening night, but that was to be expected, being a Friday. The film that was selected is the oldest in the programme having been made in 2007. Nonetheless, it was directed by Royston Tan, one of the youngest veterans in the Singaporean film scene who seems rather fond of giving his feature films numbers for titles - 15 - the movie, 4:30 and 12 Lotus.  And he does not disappoint on the t...
