I just saw this earlier today. It’s really sweet. I’ve always liked ‘Home‘, one of our National Day Parade songs in the past. For this video it’s sung by the composer himself, Dick Lee. It serves the stories depicted in the video really well. And it’s a lovely video, start to end.
From Pink Dot, where the video was posted a month ago:
In a shift from the short film format characteristic of the previous two iterations, this year’s campaign video examines moments poignant and painful, as seen through the eyes of three protagonists in portrayals based on true-to-life experiences. Set to the heartwarming lyrics of one of the country’s most recognisable songs, ‘Home’, written and sung by the multi-talented Dick Lee, the video – sharing the same title as the song, and directed by acclaimed homegrown filmmaker Boo Junfeng – touches on issues faced by LGBT people in Singapore, including love, family acceptance, transphobia and personal loss.
Pink Dot is happening this Saturday. According to its Facebook of the organiser, the event is open at 5.00pm, with the concert starting at 6.30pm.
With regards to the weather on that day, the organiser also advises:
Looks like we may get clear skies this Saturday in Singapore! With the favourable forecast in wind direction, we will proceed with all our plans for #PinkDot2013 on June 29! However, do keep yourselves subscribed to this page ( Pink Dot’s Facebook) should there be any last minute changes. More importantly, we hope that the fires in Sumatra will be put out soon, so that our friends in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia will be free from haze, whichever way the wind blows.
