Swimming Lessons by Kat Goh

On the way to the airport, a mother frets over her daughter who is leaving home for the first time. Suddenly, she finds herself on a curious detour that plumbs muddy memories, only to surface with a dazzling lesson in both life and swimming.

This is the synopsis for “Swimming Lessons”, an SIFF-winning short film by SIFF Best Director, Kat Goh.

Kat about her movie: “Most Singaporeans have the luxury of growing up living under the protection of their parents. However, we often hear complaints from our young generation about over-protective parents. Are their parents really so unreasonable or do they just love their children too much? Maybe the best thing to do is to just let go.”

A veteran of television production, Kat is one of the few female filmmakers to emerge from Singapore. Cutting her teeth on epic TV productions during an eight-year stint at both MCS and Channel U, Kat’s work on the small screen includes the highly-rated comedy series Durian King (2004).

    It’s not about the parents, about the young generation or about Singaporeans who have the luxury of growing up living under the protection of their parents. This situation was, is and will be the same with every age. Parents will always be concerned about their children growing up and entering the cruel society.
