The Bear's Mouth

Gueule d’Ours (The Bears' Mouth)

  • It is a fascinating journey through time. A horde of illuminated bears move around accompanied by extravagant dancers. A charming Master of Ceremonies walks on stilts and guides the whole procession. Travelers without borders, they migrate from town to town carrying the show on their shoulders. A strange caravan emerges in the street resembling the beginning of the century. Town criers, peddlers, street elixir sellers, acrobats and bear tamers get together to offer a sublime dance. These fascinating giants bring to you dreams and surprises. The graceful ballet offers an incredible discovery and an unbelievable encounter.

Moonlight Cinema

The inaugural Moonlight Cinema kicked off to an exceptional reception last year!

Running from 25 - 27 Oct 2019, Moonlight Cinema returns with three films that promise to delight: American comedy-drama Empire Records (1995), French drama film The Chorus (2004), and award-winning Indian musical drama Secret Superstar (2017).

Join us for a night-out under the stars with these stories of dreams-chasing journeys and musical treats in anticipation of the 30th SGIFF end-November.

This programme is presented by Singapore International Film Festival (SGIFF).

Empire Records (USA)

  • Joe (Anthony LaPaglia) runs Empire Records, an independent Delaware store that employs a tight-knit group of music-savvy youths. Hearing that the shop may be sold to a big chain, slacker employee (Roy Cochrane) bets a chunk of the store's money at the local casino, hoping to get a big return. When the plan fails, Empire Record falls into serious trouble, and the various other clerks, including lovely Corey (Liv Tyler) and gloomy Deb (Robin Tunney), must deal with the problem, among many other issues.

     

    Film by Allan Moyle (USA / 1995 / 90 minutes)

Secret Superstar (India)

  • The story of Secret Superstar is set in the town of Vadodara (Baroda) in Gujarat, India. Insia Malik (Zaira Wasim), a 15-year-old Indian Muslim girl, lives with her mother Najma (Meher Vij), younger brother Guddu, and an overbearing father Farookh (Raj Arjun). To fulfil her musical dream, Insia, a talented teenage singer-songwriter, must conceal her passion from her father who is against her dream of becoming a singer. But to save her mother, she might just have to sacrifice everything.

     

    Film by Advait Chandan (India / 2017 / 150 minutes)

The Chorus (France)

  • Pierre is an aimless child at an austere boarding school in France. The students and faculty are constantly at odds with one another, until a music teacher, Clément Mathieu, arrives and starts a choir. Clément - who has troubles of his own - tries to change the reactionary policies of the school, choosing instead to encourage his students. His efforts have a particular impact on Pierre, who shows great musical promise. The Chorus outsold even Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban at the French box office. It’s the little French film that could.

     

    Film by Christophe Barratier (France / Germany / Switzerland / 2004 / 96 minutes)
