Charity Premier of "Fireflies: River of Light"

Recently got an email about SEC's charity premier screening of the movie "Fireflies: River of Light"

The event is organised by the SEC, Singapore Film Society and partners, to raise funds for the SEC's Green Volunteers Network. The screening will be held next Friday (2 Jun 06) from 6.00 pm to 8.30 pm, at GV Grand (Great World City). For details and enquiries, kindly refer to the attached e-flyer.

"Fireflies" was produced in 2003 and has been shown at Film Festivals like the Japanese Film Festival in Sydney in 2004. It is directed by Hiroshi Sugawara, and tells the tale of how an elementary schoolteacher, Hajime, captures the imagination of his students who passionately embark on a project to clean up the river and raise fireflies to fly over it once again, despite conflict with parents, the school administration and even the city itself.

Tickets are $10 each and will be issued on 2 June. Payment is to be made on 2 June by cash or cheque (made payable to ‘Singapore Environment Council’). For enquiries and booking of tickets, please email: fireflies at sec dot org dot sg by 31 May (Wed).
Sounds like a nice movie at an affordable price and it's for a good cause!
