Cut: Cut is an uproarious critique of Singapore's repressive censorship system. It starts with a fictional woman from the censorship board being spotted in a supermarket by a stranger, who then reels off all the cuts that have been made to recent releases.

Singapore GaGa: A whimsical portrait of Singapore through the music and sounds that emanate from it. They range from train announcements, (“Eating or drinking is not allowed on the stations and trains”) to Arabic school cheers and a performance by Singaporean avant garde toy pianist Margaret Leng Tan amongst many others.

Within the framework of the Asia-Pacific Weeks, which are supported by the Stiftung Deutsche Klassenlotterie Berlin (DKLB).
