Esplanade Presents: Mosaic Music Series, Japanese Breakfast - Singapore debut

“Soft Sounds From Another Planet alludes to the promise of something that may or may not be there. Like a hope in something more. The songs are about human resilience and the strength it takes to claw out of the darkest of spaces.”
– Michelle Zauner

PLAY IT LOUD!

Performing for the first time in Singapore, Japanese Breakfast, the musical project of Michelle Zauner, brings you songs from her latest album Soft Sounds From Another Planet and her acclaimed debut Psychopomp, with songs like Boyish, Everybody Wants to Love You, and more.

Opening Band – Sobs
The show features Singapore-based trio Sobs as the opening act. Weaving a sound that goes well beyond the confines of their bedroom pop beginnings, the band plays music that is replete with playful melodies that front a dream pop backdrop.

The European Union Film Festival (EUFF) returns for its 29th edition, reflecting the diversity of perspectives, histories and cultures from across Europe. Featuring the best of contemporary European cinema, the 29th EUFF runs from 10 to 19 May 2019 at the National Gallery Singapore.

The 29th EUFF presents 27 films from across Europe with Romania as the featured country this year. The festival opens with Beside Me, Romania's first inspirational story. The film explores the idea of human connectivity in a cramped space as the story revolves around several passengers who are locked in a subway station. The Festival continues EUFF’s long tradition of collaborating with a Singaporean film school. Partnering for the fifth time with Ngee Ann Polytechnic's School of Film and Media Studies, the EUFF features short films by students and alumni of the school alongside the official film selection.

Films screened are recent and have encountered success in their country of origin. The films showcased in this festival may belong to a specific country, but they are all representative of Europe’s common cultural heritage. This film festival, now in its 29th year, is a window into the intriguing world of European cinema but also offers a platform to showcase films by young Singaporean film-makers.
