Pink Screen Festival launched by the arthouse cinema The Projector is pulling together a programme of LGBTQ friendly films, which preludes the 10 years of Pink Dot SG.
This program is supported and co-sponsored by the Inter-University LGBT Network, Grafunkt, Embassy of France in Singapore, Institut Français, BBDO/Proximity, Glen Goei & Lime Agency.
Half of the 4 films screened during the event are French : Tomboy (2011, Céline Sciamma) and BPM (Beats Per Minute) (120 Battements par minute, 2017, Robin Campillo)
A light and charming ode to the complicated relationship between one’s heart and body, TOMBOY sees 10-year-old Laure and 6-year-old Jeanne move to a new neighborhood during the summer holidays. With her Jean Seberg haircut and tomboy ways, Laure is immediately mistaken for a boy by the local kids and passes herself off as Michael – but as she would soon realise, the truth cannot always remain hidden and the games would have to end.
