On June 20 and 27, our friends at The Arts House will be having an intimate film screening, this time as part of National Family Celebrations ’09. The event is called Celebrating the Family, and will mark the world premiere of CASHLESS (2009), screened with the short film documentary, In Our Own Words (2008).

CASHLESS, a movie produced by Derek Tan and Melinda Tan, revolves around a man’s reckless pursuit of his misplaced cash after he mistakenly transfers an important sum of money meant for his mother into the wrong ATM account. When time and money are at stake, how far must he go before he finally finds himself? Starring Danny Jow, and featuring music by local bands The Lilac Saints and RustyNailz.

From the directors: “For a story revolving around money, cash in its cold hard form is conspicuously absent in the film. When we embarked on the production of CASHLESS at the start of 2008, we envisioned it to be a film exploring how ordinary people grappled with communicating, connecting and sustaining meaningful relationships with each other in a hi?tech cashless society. Little did we expect that just months later, the economic crisis would sweep the world, with the idea of cashless?ness now taking on a more poignant spin in this current landscape of financial loss.”

If all of this sounds as enthralling to you as it does to us, we suggest grabbing your tickets now. The screening will be followed by a discussion with the filmmakers.

June 20 and 27 at 4pm and 8pm. Click here for more details.
