Dreaming in Black and White 《幻境黑白》: Portrait of a Singapore Artist (Post-show dialogue)


This one-hour session is a post-show dialogue for the film Dreaming in Black and White presented by activated C Studio, directed by Lei Yuan Bin and co-produced by both Lei and Tang Ling Nah. The session will share about the conceptualisation, process of making the film and answers any questions about the film.

Film Synopsis

Dreaming in Black and White is a portrait of the Singapore artist Tang Ling Nah. The film takes us on a journey into Ling Nah’s inner world—from her fascination with the colour black and the drawing medium charcoal, to the city’s transitory spaces, memories, dreams and angels.

The film explores her practice over the last 15 years and hints at the possible new directions in her art career. It highlights Ling Nah’s courage to pursue her dream to be an artist, the choices and sacrifices she has made, as well as the challenges of being a woman artist in Singapore and her regrets in this journey.

The film’s dream-like form mixes documentary, fiction and animation. It blurs the boundaries between us, Ling Nah’s art and her deepest being. Ultimately, it celebrates our dreams—and reassures us that dreams do come true if perseveres.
