BIOSKOPE x Kampung Picnic | The Gleaners and I (2000) | FREE Steamboat

Description

LIMITED SPACES: Join us for this special BIOSKOPE co-organised with Kampung Picnic! In this exclusive edition, we'll also be having FREE GLEANERS' STEAMBOAT while watching a French film with English subtitles ♥ Bon Appétit!


GO LOCAL: Those who register with 'EARLY BIRD/STANDARD' options will get good, tasty cold-pressed healthy juice in reusable hard glass bottle courtesy of Green Hydrant, brewed at Katong. One of our small ways to go local and help support the surrounding Katong community.

FILM SYNOPSIS

An 1867 painting by Jean-Francois Millet inspired septuagenarian documentarian Agnes Varda to cross the French countryside to videotape people who scavenge. Taking everything from surplus in the fields, to rubbish in trashcans, to oysters washed up after a storm, the "gleaners" range from those sadly in need to those hoping to recreate the community activity of centuries past, and still others who use whatever they find to cobble together a rough art. Highlighted by Varda's amusing narration.

This March, we will revisit historical narratives and artistic expressions showing societies who once made ‘gleaning’ a way of life, a part of sustainable living.


9AM | VEGGIE GLEANING OFFERS & PERKS

For the more adventurous, there will be a Saturday morning sesssion for opportunity of vegetable gleaning at Little India! More details closer to the date. You will be able to take home any food source you find, or bring them along for BIOSKOPE for FREE Steamboat! For your efforts in gleaning in the day, you get special offers for watching BIOSKOPE when selecting your 'GLEANER' ticket :) The Veggie Gleaning will start from 9am - 2pm. We will contact you before BIOSKOPE on exact location of the Veggie Gleaning.


*LATEST ADDITION: 10.30 PM ON 30 MAR (Good Friday) | NIGHT GLEANING AT LITTLE INDIA


6.30PM | FREE: GLEANER'S STEAMBOAT

For the duration of the event, there will be steamboat food and refreshment. In the spirit of minimising food waste, in case there is surplus from the steamboat, we will also be giving away vegetables rescued from Little India earlier in the day! :) The FREE Steamboat will start at 6.30pm and participants will have plenty of time to chow & chat before the BIOSKOPE screening at 8pm. And yes, also in the spirit of inclusivity and climate action, it's plant-based, vegetarian and Halal <3

8PM | BIOSKOPE

BIOSKOPE (inspired by the word 'movie theatre' in Bahasa Indonesia and 'an early movie projector' in English) is a series exploring less popular, unique films that may bring thought-provoking and inspiring perspectives into our society. Beyond movie screening, audiences get to experience hands-on sessions, to provide an interactive element to the film medium.


EARLY BIRD/STANDARD: Those who register with these options will get good, tasty cold-pressed healthy juice in reusable hard glass bottle courtesy of Green Hydrant, brewed at Katong. One of our small ways to go local and help support the surrounding Katong community.


LITE: We have also received feedback for those who simply want to watch BIOSKOPE without the healthy juice from Green Hydrant. We hear you and we feel you. With this, we're introducing the LITE option :)


We're also helping to fundraise for future community outreach initiatives. Proceeds help cover refreshment, tools, material & facilitation costs, grow BIOSKOPE, space rental and build up the ground-up innovation movement.


INTRO TO STRATEGIC TOOLS

We will also be experimenting with an innovation tool that strategists, analysts and futurists use to understand complex issues, brainstorm and prepare for the future.


VENUE/DIRECTIONS
BIOSKOPE will be held at MOX, Katong Point, 451 Joo Chiat Rd, 427664, near 112 Katong Mall. You can catch bus 16 from City Hall or Dakota MRT.
