Singapore Art Museum presents Stay Home Shorts, an online film series featuring local and international short films. Starting in June 2020, the series kicks off with a special selection of four films from previous editions of SAM’s signature children’s art exhibition Art Garden. These light-hearted films centre around hope, and address the importance of family, relationships, and communication. Parental guidance is advised.
