Event Details

A Fish out of Water (上岸的鱼) - Singapore Premiere

A Fish Out of Water is a 90-minute Taiwanese feature film by new wave director, 賴國安, will premiere in Singapore at The Enabling Festival 2019. The film revolves around a family with an unusual child who claims to have memories of his former life. It touches on how people cope with dementia, the meaning of family and the value of memories.

The film is confoundedly ambiguous and poignant with breathtaking touch of sentimentality and was invited to the Toronto International Film Festival.

Running time: 90 minutes
Rating: PG
Mandarin with English subtitles

Enabling Festival 2019

What does dementia sound like?

 

The Enabling Festival (6-8 September 2019) is in its second run this year. Our focus is on sound (in the form of hearing), one of the five senses. Sound has significant impact on persons with dementia in terms of their quality of life.

 

This three-day community festival is a kaleidoscope of multidisciplinary activities in the areas of art, music, design, theatre, film, dance, medical forums and hands-on workshops. Through these programmes and activities, we hope to showcase the potentialities in enabling persons with dementia to enjoy a better quality of life.

 

The festival also shines a spotlight on caregivers, who are often the invisible heroes and provides possibilities for caregivers’ respite and solace through many interesting activities. I am heartened to see many activities for caregivers such as Sharing Sessions, Meditation and Breathing workshops and even a Silent Disco Party, amongst many others.

 

This collaboration between Enable Asia, DesignSingapore Council, National Design Centre, OneMaker Group, Project We Forgot, Alzheimer’s Disease Association (ADA), ARUP, BLOXAS Architects and the support from Our Singapore Fund (OSF) and the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC) allows the second edition of the Enabling Festival to leverage on how design, art and technology can make an impact in enabling persons with dementia, their caregivers and improve the quality of their life as we aspire to be a dementia friendly community.

 

Date: 6 – 8 September 2019
Time: 11 am – 9pm
Venue : National Design Centre
Address : 111 Middle Road Singapore 188969
