One Nation Under Lee
Seelan Palay/ Singapore/ 2008/ 42min/ Ch/En 中/英
這是新加坡最新禁演的影片,製作人Soik Chin Chee同時也參與政治運動,已經被新加坡法院宣告破產而限制出境。本片披露新加坡前總理李光耀如何緊緊掌控國家的所有政治、媒體、經濟等權力資源,透過這種霸權機制,創造出自己的王位與朝代。然而李光耀卻向外界說,他的這種作風代表「亞洲價值」以及一種「民主」的方式。
This is the latest banned political documentary from Singapore, and one of the activist filmmakers behind it has been financially bankrupted by the government and is not allowed to leave Singapore. The film looks unflinchingly at Singapore’s founding ruler, Lee Kuan Yew, meticulously detailing the history of how he subjugated the city state under the guise of democracy.
