BIOSKOPE 2018 | Worldbuilding Films: Waterworld (1995)

LIMITED SPACES: Join us for our third film night in commemoration of World Water Day! Set in a post-apocalyptic future of global flooding, survivors seek out the mythical Dryland.

After the melting of the polar ice caps, most of the globe is underwater. Some humans have survived, and even fewer still, notably the Mariner (Kevin Costner), have adapted to the ocean by developing gills. A loner by nature, the Mariner reluctantly befriends Helen (Jeanne Tripplehorn) and her young companion, Enola (Tina Majorino), as they escape from a hostile artificial island. Soon the sinister Smokers are pursuing them in the belief that Enola holds the key to finding the mythical Dryland.

EARLY BIRD SPECIAL. Those who register early 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.

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.

In March, we will be exploring the what-ifs of human survival after climate change has unleashed all its consequences. How might we be living and interacting with one another? What do we then aspire towards?

Before the movie, we will all learn to make floating farm structures inspired by an ancient technology developed by the Mesoamericans called the Chinampas, out of upcycled plastic water bottles. If you have any plastic bottles to contribute, bring them along.

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.

P.S: For those unfamiliar to Waterworld, we kindly advise you not to Google it for an optimal experience ;)
