5 things to do this weekend: 11 - 13 November
FILM | Singapore Eco Film Festival
Reeling movies to toast a greener future, Singapore Eco Film Festival screens films to make a move towards sustainability, from redefining the notion of wealth and success in Minimalism to uncovering what’s beneath the ocean plastic waste in the 96.5 Percent session.
11-13 November, 10.30am-7pm at ArtScience Museum. For more information, click here.
ART | Eden
For photographer Melisa Teo, her camera plays the role of her ‘third eye’, one that sees as the heart does. Armed with this visual take, Teo explores the depths of existentialism and seeks the answer to our place in the universe with self-portraits and images evoking the Garden of Eden.
Opens today till 27 November, 11am-7pm at SHOPHOUSE5, The Lorong 24A Shophouse Series. For more information, click here.
MUSIC | Solomun at Zouk
“People have emotions,” German DJ Solomun once mused, “So why not on a dance floor?” With a style that blends energy and emotion into reverberating deep house beats, the beloved musical renegade makes a pit stop at Zouk to spin original hit tracks such as Friends and Fantazija.
