Invisible to whom?

I am often asked about the reception of Invisible City overseas, They are curious if Invisible may be perceived differently from a Singaporean audience. Recently it was shown in Spain, at the Punto de Vista Festival. I received and email for an interview. The questions give you a flavour of the issues Invisible raises for a journalist from a country far removed from ours:

Hello Pin Pin
– How do you like to introduce yourself? As a filmmaker or as an artist?
– Why do you prefer, as a filmmaker, the documentary cinema?
– Why did you choose a digital format?
– Although in “Singapore GaGa” the City already acquired protagonist, in “Invisible City” the stories create the emerging of an another vision of the history of the island. Which was the point to begin with?
– At a specific moment, an archaeologist claims that if the camera were not present, its discovery would not exist. Do you think that the televising and cinematographic image today is considered as the only source of veracity?
– Morally, are we forced to recover and to protect politician, social and cultural past?
– Forgetting seems one of the blights of our society. Who are the guilty ones of this situation? Are the institutions? Are the mass media? Are Us?
– When Mr Han talks to the students about his past as activist, they seem not to understand the meaning of their story showing the lack of interest.
– Since its premiere in Pusan, which is the attitud of the public and critic towards the film?
. “Invisible City” is part of the Asian Network of Documentary program. Which is the situation of the documentary cinema in Asia?
– The case of the new Film Act in Thailand and the actions of the Free Thai Cinema Movement impelled by Apichatpong Weerasethakul are significant. Which is the situation of the censorship in Singapur?
– Which are, in your opinion, your influences at the time of filming your short movies and movies?
– Which are your future projects?
Thanks!
