✏Cinema and Television in Singapore Book Summary : Through close readings of contemporary made-in-Singapore films (by Jack Neo, Eric Khoo, and Royston Tan) and television programs (Singapore Idol, sitcoms, and dramas), this book explores the possibilities and limitations of resistance within an advanced capitalist-industrial society whose authoritarian government skillfully negotiates the risks and opportunities of balancing its on-going nation-building project and its a oeglobal citya aspirations. This book adopts a framework inspired by Antonio Gramsci that identifies ideological struggles in art and popular culture, but maintains the importance of Herbert Marcusea (TM)s one-dimensional society analysis as theoretical limits to recognize the power of authoritarian capitalism to subsume works of art and popular culture even as they attempt consciouslya "even at times successfullya "to negate and oppose dominant hegemonic formations.

✏Singapore Cinema Book Summary : This book outlines and discusses the very wide range of cinema which is to be found in Singapore. Although Singapore cinema is a relatively small industry, and relatively new, it has nevertheless made an impact, and continues to develop in interesting ways. The book shows that although Singapore cinema is often seen as part of diasporic Chinese cinema, it is in fact much more than this, with strong connections to Malay cinema and the cinemas of other Southeast Asian nations. Moreover, the themes and subjects covered by Singapore cinema are very wide, ranging from conformity to the regime and Singapore’s national outlook, with undesirable subjects overlooked or erased, to the sympathetic depiction of minorities and an outlook which is at odds with the official outlook. The book will be useful to readers coming new to the subject and wanting a concise overview, while at the same time the book puts forward many new research findings and much new thinking.

✏World Film Locations Singapore Book Summary : This volume in the popular World Film Locations series focuses on Singapore, a vibrant city and country nestled at the foot of the Malaysian peninsula. This city has long been a crossroads, a stopping point and a cultural hub where goods, inventions and ideas are shared and traded. Despite having a flourishing Chinese and Malay film industry in the 1950s and 1960s, Singapore s film industry declined after independence in 1965. Between this time and the early 90s a few films were made that featured Singaporean actors and were set in Singapore, however as most of these were not released in Singapore they cannot be labeled as truly Singaporean productions. The first fully Singaporean film came in 1991, with "Medium Rare, "a film based on a real-life local cult killer who was hanged in 1988 for murder. However the film performed poorly at the box office, taking just S$130,000 locally after having cost over S$2 million in production. Even though "Medium Rare "was not a success financially it did pave the way for other Singaporean films such as 1995 s "Mee Pok Man," a film about a lonely noodle seller who falls for a prostitute, which earned worldwide critical accolades and encouraged more experimental, independent film making in Singapore. In recent years the Singapore film industry has produced both commercially successful fare such as horror movie "The Maid "as well as more artistic films like "Sandcastle, "Boo Junfeng s film which was the first Singaporean film to be selected at the International Critic s Week at Cannes, and was competing for the Camera d Or. This book focuses on both past and present Singaporean films and their cultural and geographic links to the city-state of Singapore. The book will include Malay and Chinese language films. The book will cover the myths that surround Singaporean film and explore the realities of the movies that come from this exciting city. "

✏Celluloid Singapore Book Summary : Celluloid Singapore is a ground-breaking study of the three major periods in Singapore's fragmented cinema history, namely the golden age of the 1950s and 60s, the post-studio 1970s, and the revival from the 1990s onwards. Set against the context of Singapore's own trajectory of development, the book poses two central questions: how can the films of each period be considered 'Singapore' films, and how is this cinema specifically national? The book argues that the films of these three periods collectively constitute a national cinema through different performances of Singapore, offering a critical framework for understanding this cinema and its history in relation to the development of the country and the national.

✏The Construction of Singapore in Singapore Cinema Book Summary : My PhD will explore Singapore's ‘identity’ as it is constructed through the lens of Singapore cinema, a complex task given the country’s multiracialism, diasporic past and present, and the ever-changing cultural landscape of the country. My research will cover national and cultural identity in Singapore, local film culture, and the relationship between identity and film representation. As my PhD is with Creative Practice, I will also be producing a feature documentary as part of the research process. The documentary exemplifies the concept of ‘research-led practice’ (Smith & Dean, 2009, p. 7), while the in-depth interviews with a diverse range of people featured within provides qualitative data for the written component of the thesis.

✏Hong Kong Cinema Book Summary : Examining Hong Kong cinema from its inception in 1913 to the end of the colonial era, this work explains the key areas of production, market, film products and critical traditions. Hong Kong Cinema considers the different political formations of Hong Kong's culture as seen through the cinema, and deals with the historical, political, economic and cultural relations between Hong Kong cinema and other Chinese film industries on the mainland, as well as in Taiwan and South-East Asia. Discussion covers the concept of 'national cinema' in the context of Hong Kong's status as a quasi-nation with strong links to both the 'motherland' (China) and the 'coloniser' (Britain), and also argues that Hong Kong cinema is a national cinema only in an incomplete and ambiguous sense.
