SIFA 2017: "Lizard on the Wall", Red Carpet Gala


  • The Projector 6001 Beach Road Singapore, 199589 Singapore (map)

Lizard On The Wall is the much-awaited, completed film of an exciting mode of movie-making pioneered by SIFA with the audiences of The O.P.E.N., our pre-festival of ideas. Edited (the hallmark of cinema) into a full film, this is a risky undertaking that harnesses the spontaneity of live performance and introduces unknown stars drawn directly from our audiences! Hot out of the editing suite, Lizard On The Wall, the latest Singapore film from prolific film-maker K. Rajagopal and Fran Borgia of Akanga Film Asia was shot in July 2017.

The film presents the wedding banquet of Amrit in the family house, beginning with a festive celebration of song and dance. The events of the day then take a turn when embarrassing secrets come to light, and guests are made to confront the shameful truths of a double life. High drama set against a colourful backdrop, Lizard On The Wall is also an inventive take on interactive performance, showing the SIFA audience vividly in a new Singapore film.

Lizard on the Wall was inpisred by Balli Kaur Jaswal's novel, Inheritance .
