Hi All

Short cuts of three Super-8 Cities documentary films are now available on the 4Docs website:

Singapore: http://www.channel4....il.jsp?id=39426

The Singapore doco was shot on Velvia 50D, which may be on interest to some.

Of the films "Identity" Singapore was my favourite. A dry look at one mans view of himself. And of singapore. I enjoyed the film and the narration.

Thanks Mark.

In fact, Gavin's Super-8 Cities film has now become "Film of the Week" on 4Docs - an encouraging sign without a doubt.

I have to agree with Mark. Singapore is my favourite too.

Having just been there a couple months ago, I found that it really captured the essence of the place.

The Barcelona film brought back some great memories. I travelled there in 1997 and have been itching to go back. I'd like to own a home there. I'm surprised the film didn't include Park Guell and Gaudi's architecture--but I suppose the filmmaker wanted to avoid the tourist traps and show another side to the city. The narration was a bit somber--seemed to match the dreary, overcast sky in the footage. I have nothing but great memories of Barcelona. Thanks for posting it.
