Synopsis

Housing, heartland, home. Amidst the backdrop of Singapore’s celebrated and politicized public housing intended for families, 03-Flats follows the domestic existence of three single women who are striving for independence at different stages of their lives. It juxtaposes the nationalistic ambitions of a state-driven housing program against the occupants’ struggles to preserve personal routines, traditions and aspirations. 03-Flats embodies prosaic domesticity wherein existence becomes spontaneous and life ironically escapes formulation. 03-FLATS is a key filmic output of a research initiative led by Dr Lilian Chee (Department of Architecture, National University of Singapore). Chee conceptualised the project and made the film in collaboration with award-winning Singaporean filmmaker Lei Yuan Bin (13 Little Pictures) to probe how domesticity—a critical component wherein home is produced—may be viscerally represented and experientially encountered.

新加坡的政府组屋多年来在国家的建国史中扮演了重要的角色。建屋发展局高效率的建屋措施使新加坡人实现了居者有其屋的愿望,在这过程中却出现了些不足的地方。这部纪录片追踪了三位单身女子在不同的人生阶段中如何争取独立生活,这些挣扎又如何与国家所追求的目标并行。雷远彬导演以旁观者的角度为这三名女子的日常生活、传统观念、人生抱负等做了真实的记录。
