My Mama And Me by Anne Lim
From love, to family, to growing old in Singapore, five seniors who are first-time writers capture the intimacies of life in their respective short monologues filmed from their homes. This video is a reimagining of a Peranakan grandmother's strong matriarchal influence as the writer reflected on the challenges of growing older, with grace.
Anne Lim is grateful for the opportunities in her silver years to uncover the artist within. She loves exercising her creativity through writing, painting and singing. Anne finds inspiration in nature.
This is a pre-recorded session, and will be available on video-on-demand replay.
There will be a free post-monologue Q&A happening 8 Nov, Sun 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM on SWF FB Live.
