Watch Local 2017: Singapore Telemovies | The Playground by K.Rajagopal
story, The Playground, is inspired by Cultural Award recipient the late Arthur
Yap’s poem 2 mothers in a HDB playground. The relationship between two
sisters Hui Fang and Hui Ying, and Hui Fang's young son Kim Cheong is the main focus in this telemovie directed by award-winning director K.
Rajagopal (A Yellow Bird). While Kim Cheong seems funny and
everyone likes him – he is also a mature child who cares about his family and clearly
sees things that even the adults overlook.
Objectifs’ annual series dedicated to showcasing Singapore films turns to the small screen for inspiration. Telemovies commissioned by local television stations have entertained generations of Singaporeans not just in their homes but also on television sets (and, more recently, digital devices) in void decks, community centres and hawker centres across the island.
In Watch Local 2017, a selection of telemovies from the 90s to 2016 will come to life again, on the big screen for the first time. The films range from original scripts to adaptations of short stories and stage plays by local writers.
