Film Screening of “Small Town, Big Dreams” jointly organised by Asia Research Institute

Join us for the Singapore film premiere of the warmly received short film “Mimpi Anak Desa” (“Small Town, Big Dreams”), which features the aspirations of young people from Ponorogo, Indonesia. Supported by remittances sent home by migrant parents, Miko and Nisa are hard on the heels of their goals of being an entrepreneur and a nurse. The event also features “Ceria”, the story of Rista, a domestic worker who, after having worked in Singapore for 10 years, dreams big of building a community library back home in Indonesia – and turns this into a reality with a clear-eyed and steady purpose. See image above for event details.
