BIOSKOPE: Network (1976) | 4 Academy Awards

Description
*UPDATE: Due to an unforeseen emergency, we have to postpone this to next Saturday evening (3 Mar). Thanks so much to those who have signed up for your kind understanding when we called up regarding the postponement. To those who are keen to join in next Saturday evening, you can get your ticket here: https://bioskopenetwork.eventbrite.sg GUILDHALL will still proceed as usual.


LIMITED SPACES: Join us for BIOSKOPE of a multiple award-winning film right before our first GUILDHALL on 'fake news' on 24 Feb evening! Have you ever wondered what it would take to amplify one individual's beliefs across a nation so strongly that it could lead to mass hysteria?

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.


FILM SYNOPSIS
In this lauded satire, veteran news anchorman Howard Beale (Peter Finch) discovers that he's being put out to pasture, and he's none too happy about it. After threatening to shoot himself on live television, instead he launches into an angry televised rant, which turns out to be a huge ratings boost for the UBS network. This stunt allows ambitious producer Diana Christensen (Faye Dunaway) to develop even more outrageous programming, a concept that she takes to unsettling extremes.

In February, we will be exploring the what-ifs and complexities in the area of freedom, security and justice (AFSJ) that could also help inform us in developing strategies to address the spread of deliberate falsehoods through mass media.

TASTE MAKING
For the duration of the event, there will be finger food and refreshment,
along with a 'mood-inspired' food making session, where you get to craft your own food from ingredients to choose from based on a mood of your choice ;) Since it's the Chinese New Year season, you also get to taste delicacies and sweet treats.

FALSE MARKETING
For the fun of it, let's see how creative and credible you can get in doing 'false marketing' for the finger food and refreshment! And give a try at writing 'fake reviews' and 'fake descriptions' that sound so real that people would actually believe it and want to eat it too :D

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.

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.

To learn more or to explore collaborations, kindly PM us or connect with us at support@groundupinnovation.org

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