Factory (Super)Women

Description

Update: Our film screening and panel discussion on 23rd Feb 11am might be full, but fret not! All exhibition guided tours begin with a film screening, so you can still catch our documentary film at any of the other timings!

Film Screening and Panel Discussion

Factory (Super)Women is a documentary film that portrays the narratives of factory women who paved the way towards Singapore's economic success. Inspired by his mother and grandmother's experiences as factory workers, Wei Han seeks to record the oral history of female factory workers.

By providing the women a platform to remember, reminisce and reflect about their own experiences, Factory (Super)Women is infused with their bittersweet memories of factory work – from the stress and struggles of the production line, to the sense of community and sisterhood with their fellow workers.

The film screening will be followed by a panel discussion and open conversation on the importance of factory women’s experiences in Singapore’s historical narrative.
