Short Film: Dream Of Emerald Hill
Directed by Mingyu Lin
Written by Daniel York
Rosie Seow aka Kheng Lim was one of Singapore’s first English speaking stage actresses and almost definitely the first actor of South East Asian descent to train at London’s prestigious RADA drama school. Her daughter, Stella Kon, author of the seminal Emily Of Emerald Hill, went on to become one of Singapore’s most acclaimed writers. Through snapshot vignettes from the 40’s and 50’s (including a perilous war time journey) Dream Of Emerald Hill celebrates the life of this pioneering and inspirational figure-actress, teacher, wife, mother and nation-builder.
