The Art of Racing in the Rain

The story is about the life of a dog living with a man who aspires to be a great racer.

Liked the interesting animation sequence with the zebra in the middle of the film! The plot is a little predictable and I didn't quite understand the technical details on how the protagonist was able to do better in the rain.

Project RED

The project consists of four short stories. Each of them explain how we have more in common than we think.

Liked the dynamics between the two Indian couples in "Singapore Flying", the montage of the lives of two people in "Merging Lanes", the new friendship forged in "Common Ground" and the impact of the parents' biases on their children in "The Dispute"!

P.S. Short Films

There are four short stories in the series. Each of them describes what the unsung heroes in the public service does.

Liked how the youth guidance office believed in her girl in "P.S. Finding L", the nice sports action with the legends in "P.S. Farrer Park", the beautiful scenery in "P.S. Nothing Gold Can Stay" and the determination by the officer to understand the ground situation in "P.S. In One's Shoes"!

Memory Games

This is a documentary about the lives of a few memory athletes around the world.

I had imagined all of them to have a nerdy look but I was surprised! The interviewees included a woman with purple hair and a tall man who was into mountaineering and crossfit among others! None of them wore spectacles!

The Red Turtle

The story is about what happened when a man met a red turtle on a deserted island.

Liked the beautiful sounds of nature and operatic voice! Was a little bit shocked by the twist in the middle of the film but the plot flowed quite smoothly forward after that.

Brene Brown: The Call to Courage

This is a talk by best seller writer Brene Brown on the meaning of courage.

Liked the many real life examples of courage that were peppered with humour! My mental image of a courageous person used to be a young fit man fighting a tiger with his bare hands, but I realized that anybody could be courageous after her talk.
