    ANIMAL SPIRITS

    by Daniel Hui
    2013 | 9 mins | Rating TBC

    Gallery Theatre, Basement, National Museum of Singapore
    04 Aug 2013, 2pm
    The Stamford Visitors Services Counter (Free tickets to be collected a week before each screening)
    3 & 4 August screening (Ticket collection from 27 July)

    *World premiere
    Structured as a diary entry, a documentary and perhaps, under the guise of a self-help video, Animal Spirits provides two testimonies of students living in Los Angeles: Mara Otero who left her management job and partner behind in Pennsylvania, and Hyesung Moon who is dependent on her mother’s financial support.

    As an inquiry into the role of emotions and instincts within the global economy, Animal Spirits is a perceptive and personal look at how the human psyche is shaped by the movement of capital. The confessional dialogue and images from these two testimonies offer frank examples of how human desires and connections can co-exist.
