Filmmaking for Social Change: A Seminar with Jasmine Ng

What does it take to make a good documentary? Local filmmaker Jasmine Ng shares with us the different documentary formulae and the directorial process of research, ethics and storytelling.

In collaboration with local visual arts centre Objectifs, Perspectives Film Festival 2014 will feature Jasmine Ng, one of the few female filmmaking veterans in Singapore. In this seminar, participants will hear Jasmine’s experiences working on her own documentaries like Pink Paddlers and Both Sides, Now and find out how film can be used as a medium to initiate change in society.
