The Silk And The Flame (2018)
Director: Jordan Schiele
Nearing forty and still single, Yao returns to his familial home in provincial China for Chinese New Year to visit his deaf-mute mother and invalid father, whose dying wish is to see his son wedded to the right woman – but Yao secretly wishes to marry the right man instead. A quietly affecting documentary shot in a stark yet mesmerising black & white, THE SILK AND THE FLAME is an intimate portrait of family, tradition and the struggle against conformity.
The Silk And The Flame is being screened as part of Pink Screen at The Projector presented by NBCU and Salesforce – a series of screenings that showcase the talent, struggles and victories of the LGBTQ community across different countries and cultures.
Our aim is to present a curated selection of films that celebrate both personal and universal LGBTQ stories. We believe in film as a source of catharsis and as a vehicle to inspire, motivate and challenge prejudice and established perceptions. Through this series of screenings we intend to not only entertain, but to also spark conversations and connections, to educate and to provide much needed representation and diversity in the current film offerings in Singapore.
Standard Tickets $13.50, Concession Tickets $11.50
