17 Mar (Sat): FREE screening of 'Ubin Sayang' at Sentosa

Come for the first FREE public screening of the 'Ubin, Sayang' at Sentosa on 17 Mar (Sat) 3-4pm (with FREE admission to Sentosa*). This gorgeous film by Rachel Quek and her team features the Restore Ubin Mangroves (R.U.M.) Initiative and the people of Ubin.
'Ubin, Sayang' traces the journey of Xiao Ting as she learns from the stories of mangrove restoration and kampong living. In the context of modern Singaporean nostalgia for the kampong, the film brings together different perspectives on what the kampong spirit truly entails, and discusses its implications for us today.
