    Red Dragonflies (Singapore premiere)

    Liao Jiekai, Singapore, 2010, 96 minutes, PG

    Thu, 14 Apr | 7.30pm

    Rachel and her two friends explore an abandoned railway track that runs through a dense forest, but an unforeseen incident brings their little adventure to an abrupt end. Elsewhere, 26-year-old Rachel rekindles an old friendship with a high school friend. When a little boy from her past reappears, Rachel finds herself retracing a trail of iron and wood. Wistful and mysterious, the film depicts a world littered with incongruity, absences and traces of childhood dreams. Red Dragonflies won the Special Jury Prize at the Jeonju International Film Festival 2010.

    Director Liao Jiekai received his BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and lectures in Media Education and Visual Arts (International Baccalaureate) at the School of the Arts in Singapore. Since 2005, he has directed several short films, most notably Clouds in a Shell and The Inner City. He is a founding member of 13 Little Pictures, a film collective that champions innovative feature films. Red Dragonflies is his feature debut.
