Video: The Graduate

Hat tip to Gssq for sharing this short video about the hard life as a Singaporean graduate. Entitled “The Graduate”, this short socio-commentary video was produced by The Video Renegades back in 2003 (*respects*).

After watching this, do visit Gssq’s blog for his “scene by scene” commentary (better than a DVD!). He also sums up this succinct video as “a critique of the lamentable fact of intelligent, well-educated graduates being too choosey and holding out for good jobs instead of being entrepreneurial and retraining to fry gao laak (fried chestnuts) at hawker centres”. I just have to say that we Singaporeans should try to slow down and think beyond the dollars, so that we can start making some sense.
