Residencies Insights The Return Film screening and Q&A with director Green Zeng (Singapore), Artist-in-Residence

Description

Wen, a political detainee, is released after many years of imprisonment. Arrested without trial for being an alleged communist, he returns, an old man, to an uneasy reunion with his children. Wen also wanders through the city to see how his homeland has transformed into a shining metropolis. He is philosophical about his long detainment without trial and is ready to move on. But as the past collides with the present, unforeseen circumstances force his journey to take a tragic turn.

In 2015, The Return made its international premiere in competition at the 30th Venice International Film Critics’ Week, a parallel section of the Venice International Film Festival. It was first screened in Singapore at the 26th Singapore International Film Festival in 2015.
