Director Tan Pin Pin's new feature film, In Time to Come, opens in Singapore.

A hit on the international film festival circuit, the film has appeared at A-list documentary festivals: It premiered in April at Visions du Réel festival in Nyon, Switzerland, played at Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival in Toronto and Sheffield Doc/Fest in the U.K., amongst other respected venues. Outside of Singapore, the Korean broadcast rights for In Time to Come have been sold to EBS.

Synopsis
A time capsule is unearthed; a “time cube” is set up. “What’s worth preserving from Singapore today?” asks Tan Pin Pin’s elegant, incisive experimental documentary. Is it the discipline imposed on public school children? The sterile malls and expressways of which the city-state is so proud? As trees are violently cut down and carted away to an uncertain future, Tan questions, “What’s the price of this perfectly pruned order?” Sometimes the quietest voice of protest carries the greatest weight. - Shelly Kraicer.
