BIOSKOPE 2018 | Worldbuilding Films: Dragon Blade (2015)

LIMITED SPACES: Join us for our second film night leading up to Chinese New Year! Set in an alternate history, diverse civilisations from the West, Far East and Middle East converge at the Silk Road and a key question emerges: "Will there be peace or war?"

EARLY BIRD SPECIAL. Those who register early will get good, tasty cold-pressed healthy juice in reusable hard glass bottle courtesy of Green Hydrant, brewed at Katong. One of our small ways to go local and help support the surrounding Katong community.

An exiled Chinese general (Jackie Chan) offers shelter to a renegade Roman (John Cusack) and his legion, then becomes involved in the soldier's dispute with Rome's villainous consul (Adrien Brody).

BIOSKOPE (inspired by the word 'movie theatre' in Bahasa Indonesia and 'an early movie projector' in English) is a series exploring less popular, unique films that may bring thought-provoking and inspiring perspectives into our society. Beyond movie screening, audiences get to experience hands-on sessions, to provide an interactive element to the film medium.

In February, we will be exploring the what-ifs and complexities in the area of freedom, security and justice (AFSJ) that could emerge when multiple cultures and different worldviews converge.

For the duration of the event, there will be finger food and refreshment. In celebrating the Lunar New Year, you also get to experience brewing and tasting your own Chinese tea :)

Paper folding is thought to have originated from China before crossing the sea to Japan and spreading to the Middle East via the Silk Road and then into Europe. You may also make Chinese-themed origami or zhe zhi for yourself or your special someone that evening.

We're also helping to fundraise for future community outreach initiatives. Proceeds help cover refreshment, tools, material & facilitation costs, grow BIOSKOPE, space rental and build up the ground-up innovation movement.
