This volume in the popular World Film Locations series focuses on Singapore, a vibrant city and country nestled at the foot of the Malaysian peninsula. This city has long been a crossroads, a stopping point and a cultural hub where goods, inventions and ideas are shared and traded. Despite having a flourishing Chinese and Malay film industry in the 1950s and 1960s, Singapore s film industry declined after independence in 1965. Between this time and the early 90s a few films were made that featured Singaporean actors and were set in Singapore, however as most of these were not released in Singapore they cannot be labeled as truly Singaporean productions. The first fully Singaporean film came in 1991, with "Medium Rare, "a film based on a real-life local cult killer who was hanged in 1988 for murder. However the film performed poorly at the box office, taking just S$130,000 locally after having cost over S$2 million in production. Even though "Medium Rare "was not a success financially it did pave the way for other Singaporean films such as 1995 s "Mee Pok Man," a film about a lonely noodle seller who falls for a prostitute, which earned worldwide critical accolades and encouraged more experimental, independent film making in Singapore. In recent years the Singapore film industry has produced both commercially successful fare such as horror movie "The Maid "as well as more artistic films like "Sandcastle, "Boo Junfeng s film which was the first Singaporean film to be selected at the International Critic s Week at Cannes, and was competing for the Camera d Or. This book focuses on both past and present Singaporean films and their cultural and geographic links to the city-state of Singapore. The book will include Malay and Chinese language films. The book will cover the myths that surround Singaporean film and explore the realities of the movies that come from this exciting city. "
