Title: Film as a medium of reconciliation

Abstract: Those Days Are Gone is a film that grew out of the intent to document the ‘lost generation’ that was created by the abolishment of the parochial Chinese education system in Singapore. There were many reasons why the government made certain decisions many years ago that led to the closure of Chinese schools, but this film is not specifically about these historical events. The documentary instead chooses to focus on the people that were affected by this and their journey past this time. In my opinion, the film is a journey of personal reconciliation with the past, for both Jing Xiang and his subjects. The idea that film could be a medium that facilitates something as powerful as reconciliation is extremely intriguing to me, and I started exploring in detail how other films have attempted or achieved the same thing, as research for my role of editor. This report will show how film as a medium can have a part to play in the act of political reconciliation.
