Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Cinema and Television in Singapore contains the table of contents, list of illustrations, acknowledgements, and introduction. The book explores, through a close study of contemporary made-in-Singapore films and television programs, the possibilities and limitations of resistance through art and popular culture within a one-dimensional society. By emphasizing the complexity of television and film production and consumption in Singapore, it aims to dispel the convenient, cynical, and mostly mistaken view that all of the Singapore films and television programs that have survived the brutality of censorship must surely serve only the parochial interests of the authoritarian state and its capitalist partners. The dynamic tension between Frankfurt School critical theory and British cultural studies approaches helps to illuminate complex moments of complicity and resistance in Singapore film and television.

Keywords: British cultural studies; films; one-dimensional society; Singapore; television program
