FOREWORD

A handwritten letter is an expression of heartfelt sentimentality and an honest connection between two. All seven of us have a special connection to Singapore; we have spent a large part of our lives here, chased our dreams and grown our careers, and along the way, encountered many moving stories from extraordinary people who call this place home.


7 Letters is a celebration of those personal stories among us – each ‘letter’ is intricately interwoven with our memories, experiences, joys and woes. They are honest, sincere, unembellished. Yet through them all, the theme of home threads through.


As Singapore celebrates a milestone in​ her nationhood journey, this special initiative has brought together many talented ​luminaries from Singapore’s arts and creative industry to create a befitting tribute to the people of Singapore, and a way to give back to the community. What started out as a simple idea has grown into a heartfelt gift, and we are grateful for the generous support of our partners, fellow artists, and friends for making this possible.


We approach the film’s unveil at the monumental Capitol Theatre with great anticipation; returning to the grand dame of Singapore cinema’s silver screens makes this feel almost like a homecoming. It is a moment we want to share with you, and we would like you to join us and be part of this once-in-a-lifetime journey in any way you can.


This will be more than just another film. 7 Letters is our story. It is our hope that through it, you too will be inspired to reflect on your connections with this place we call home.

Synopsis

Singapore’s seven most illustrious directors have gathered their creative storytelling and filmmaking talents in a one-of-a-kind project celebrating Singapore’s 50th year.

 

7 Letters represents seven heartfelt ‘love letters’ to Singapore, capturing each of the directors’ personal and poignant connection with the place they call home. The seven stories tell of our heartland and its people through tales of lost love, identity, inter-generational familial bonds and tensions, unlikely neighbours, and even references to traditional folklore.

 

Boo Junfeng, Eric Khoo, K Rajagopal, Jack Neo, Tan Pin Pin, Royston Tan, and Kelvin Tong, all award-winning filmmakers and familiar names in Singapore’s film industry, will present an emotive anthology showcasing the lives and stories of Singaporeans.

 

7 Letters is fully supported by the Singapore Film Commission (SFC) and has been selected as the Opening Film at the iconic Capitol Theatre in July 2015.

THEATRICAL RELEASE: SEVEN DAYS ONLY

Highly acclaimed SG50 film, 7 Letters, will be released theatrically at seven Golden Village cinemas for seven days, from 20 to 26 August. Advance ticket sales will begin on 5 August at all GV Box Offices and online at www.gv.com.sg.

The overwhelming support towards this film is very encouraging and humbling. Golden Village is an ideal partner to help us bring 7 Letters to more people. We hope more Singaporeans will experience this meaningful project, while making a positive difference in our community.”

The search is on for a local pianist to take the stage at the newly refurbished Capitol Theatre this July, with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform live at the Gala Premiere of 7 Letters.

    BOO JUNFENG 巫俊锋

    Boo Junfeng’s debut feature film Sandcastle (2010) premiered at Cannes Film Festival’s International Critics’ Week, and was subsequently invited to global film festivals, including Toronto, Pusan, Vancouver and London. The film won Best Film, Best Director and the NETPAC Jury Award at the Vietnam International Film Festival, and was listed by The Wall Street Journal as one of Asia’s most notable films of 2010.


    Trained in film schools in Singapore and Spain, Boo’s works often revolve around themes of identity, memory and sexuality. His films have won him acclaim at numerous film festivals, including Berlin Film Festival, International Film Festival Rotterdam and Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival.


    In 2008, Boo became the first recipient of the McNally Award for Excellence in the Arts — the valedictorian honour of Lasalle College of the Arts. His talent was recognised by the Singapore Government as he was accorded the Young Artist Award (2009) and the Singapore Youth Award (2011).


    Eric Khoo 邱金海

    Credited with reviving the Singapore film industry and putting the country on the international film map, Cultural Medallion recipient Eric Khoo has been recognised as the first Singaporean to have his films invited to major film festivals including Berlin, Venice and Cannes.


    Khoo’s notable films include his debut Mee Pok Man (1995), 12 Storeys (1997), Be With Me (2005), My Magic (2008) and Tatsumi (2011). 12 Storeys was the first Singaporean film to be invited to participate in the 50th Cannes Film Festival, while My Magic was the first Singaporean film to compete for the prestigious Cannes Palme d’Or. Besides his filmmaking achievements, Khoo has produced several award-winning films including 15 (2003) and Sandcastle (2010). Together with 12 Storeys’ co-writer James Toh and actress Lucilla Teoh, he also wrote a White Paper which resulted in the formation of the Singapore Film Commission.


    Khoo was awarded the Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Letters by the French Minister of Culture in 2008. Two years later, the Pompidou Centre in Paris held an Eric Khoo film retrospective. He served as President of the Jury at The Locarno International Film Festival in 2010, and at the Rotterdam International Film Festival and Asian Film Awards in 2012. Khoo also headed the jury at the Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival 2013, and in 2014, was invited to be on the juries of the San Sebastian International Film Festival and the Tokyo International Film Festival.

    K. RAJAGOPAL

    Award-winning filmmaker K. Rajagopal was first recognised when he took home the Singapore International Film Festival’s Special Jury Prize three years consecutively.

His works have also been commissioned by the Singapore Arts Festival and Theatreworks (Brother, 1997), as well as the National Museum of Singapore (The New World, 2008 and Timeless, 2010). Timeless premiered at the Museum’s retrospective of his short films that same year, and in 2011, was in competition at the Oberhausen Short Film Festival.


    In 2008, Rajagopal was part of the Lucky 7 film project, which saw the participation of six other prominent Singaporean directors. The omnibus feature film was selected for the 37th International Film Festival Rotterdam, 21st Singapore International Film Festival and the 27th Vancouver International Film Festival.


    Rajagopal has also worked on stage for more than 10 years, and has collaborated with notable theatre directors on projects including Medea, Mother Courage, Beauty World, Lao Jiu, Private Parts, Broken Birds, Longing, Six of the Best, Dream Home, The Epic Poem Of Malaya, Film – Faust and The King Lear Project: A Trilogy, which was invited to the Kunsten Festival Des Arts in Brussels.

Her first film exploring these themes was Moving House (1997), a documentary about the exhumation of her great-grandparents’ grave. Some of her other works include Singapore GaGa (2005), Invisible City (2007) and To Singapore, with Love (2013).


    Her films have screened at Berlinale, Busan, Vision du Reel, Flaherty Film Seminar and more, receiving international acclaim.
