This 20-minute music video, set in the time of Covid-19, fuses poetry, a cappella and opera.
It revolves around Mariam (Wong Yong En), a social distancing enforcement officer who fines people who do not wear masks or keep a metre apart from each other. Ironically, the same rules prevent her from seeing her dying mother (Ng Jingyun) in a nursing home.
Panic Love, which is sung in rhyming couplets, examines our unquestioning acceptance of rules. It is directed by veteran actor Nora Samosir, with libretto by poet Felix Cheong and music by composer Chen Zhangyi.
The screening is followed by a chat on Zoom with the creative team.
WHEN: Sunday (Jan 31), 8pm
