Stay Home & Watch: An Online Citizen

Since early June 2021, the team behind the FreedomFilmFest (FFF) have been releasing a specially curated Freedom film playlist every weekend - dubbed ‘Weekend Watch with FreedomFilmFest' - on their YouTube channel. This month, the playlist is dedicated to speaking up about censorship in film, music and arts, and the given theme is 'Merdekakan Minda Rakyat'. This weekend, you'll be able to catch the film An Online Citizen, a documentary about Singapore's alternative news portal The Online Citizen, and the man behind it, Terry Xu. Joining us to discuss the film is Dr Thum Ping Tjin, the Managing Director of independent media outlet, New Naratif, who produced the film.
