About the Event

The Shades of Love

Sinopsis Filem
The Shades of Love adalah sebuah perjalanan intim menelusuri cinta, kehidupan, dan kehilangan buat tiga orang pekerja seks di Singapura. Di sebalik hari-hari biasa di kota ini, suara wanita-wanita ini membawa kita melangkaui kebiasaan kita, ke dalam pengalaman yang dilalui mereka. Meninggalkan pandangan satu dimensi tentang pekerja seks, wanita-wanita ini juga adalah pencinta, anak gadis, ahli terapi, usahawan, dan pendidik. Dengan menyuluhkan cahaya ke arah sisi kemanusiaan, harga diri, dan kuasa yang dimiliki oleh komuniti tertindas dan terasing ini, kisah mereka mengajar kita satu perkara - cinta dan kehidupan datang dalam pelbagai warna.

Film Synopsis
The Shades of Love is an intimate journey into the loves, lives and losses of 3 sex workers in Singapore. As an ordinary day in this city unfolds, the voices of these women take us beyond the everyday we dwell in, into the lived experiences they inhabit. Moving beyond the one-dimensional perception of sex workers, these women are also lovers, daughters, therapists, entrepreneurs, and educators. By shedding light on the humanity, dignity, and power of this marginalised and underserved community, their stories teach us one thing - love and life come in various shades.
