22nd European Union Film Festival – Trishna

The European Union Film Festival, Singapore 2nd longest running film festival, is back for the 22nd year. This year’s line up is the largest ever with 23 carefully handpicked European films that showcase the rich and cultural diversity of Europe.

This year’s film festival will also include the Singapore premieres of United Kingdom’s Trishna and French romantic comedy La Chance de Ma Vie (Second Chance).

I was invited to watch Trishna during the media preview. Trishna is a 2012 British drama film directed by Michael Winterbottom, starring Freida Pinto (Slumdog Millionaire, Immortals) and Riz Ahmed (The Road to Guantanamo). Based on Thomas Hardy’s 1891 classic novel Tess of the D’Urbervilles, Trishna tells the story of one woman whose life is destroyed by a combination of love and circumstances in modern day India.

PS: Love the soundtrack!

This year, the EU Film Festival is partnering LASALLE College of the Arts’ Puttnam School of Film. The School has curated 14 short films by its alumni, to be screened before selected European films.

The 22nd European Union Film Festival is happening from 11 to 20 May 2012 at Golden Village Vivio City. Ticket sales start today on GV website. For more info, visit EUFF Facebook page.
