Poster (13 April 2015)ABOUT 03-FLATS

Singapore’s public housing programme—an inclusive space that prioritizes families and intergenerational living—is arguably the most successful in the world. Amidst this backdrop, 03-FLATS follows the domestic experiences of three single women who are at different stages of their lives. Looking from within each flat, the film moves between the women’s distinctively lived interiors and the ordered public spaces beyond. It records how domestic resilience might resist the ennui of mass housing, turning housing into home. 03-FLATS is a key filmic output of a research initiative led by Dr Lilian Chee (Department of Architecture, NUS). Chee conceptualised the project and made the film in collaboration with award-winning Singaporean director and filmmaker Lei Yuan Bin (13 Little Pictures) to probe how domesticity—a critical component wherein home is produced—may be viscerally represented and experientially encountered. 03-FLATS was in competition at the Busan International Film Festival (2014) and won the best ASEAN documentary at the Salaya International Documentary Film Festival (2015).
