When Honour (Singapore) was first launched, there were concerns that such an old-fashioned and lofty word might not make sense in today’s world, particularly to the younger generation. So we put it to the test. We set out to discover what young people think of Honour.
We invited student filmmakers from Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s School of Film & Media Studies, as well as young adult filmmakers, to share with us their perspective of Honour, through the medium of film.
We were pleasantly surprised by the breadth of perspective we found, confirming our hypothesis that Honour is a value resident in each one of us, whether we are conscious of it or not.
Film has indeed proven to be an ideal medium for conveying the nuances, multi-layered complexities and meanings of Honour, in all its various hues and facets.
