Would like to recommend an upcoming film in the Singapore International Film Festival
Living with the Tiger (www.livingwiththetiger.com )
is a real-life feature film about a group of innocent children that are paying a desperate price for the mistakes of others. They have all lost their parents; been born with a life-threatening disease, and most were cast aside to die by extended family. Yet, despite their predicament, they show a resilience and determination that has been inspiring audiences and changing attitudes.
The film-makers aim to raise awareness of the stigma surrounding HIV and the devastating effect it has on peoples lives.
The Nation newspaper said “it has such powerful important messages, it should be mandatory viewing”, while Greg Lowe from CNNgo described it as “hugely empowering and uplifting”
If you have to miss this screening because you can’t make it, but would really really like to catch it, there’s another chance to do so, as there will be a screening on Monday 26th at NUS.
