Lion City (1960) screens at Old School

Highly recommended for an introduction to the first in a long line of films that tries to be Singaporean. It gives you an idea of what “Singaporean” entailed then. For one, it entailed being a union member because everyone in the film seemed to be going to a union meeting through out. It also (then, and arguably now) entails voting for PAP and of course, living in a HDB flat. The original National Education movie that is precious in its earnestness and awkwardness as it wills itself to be Singaporean.
