Conclusion (D3 Group 2)This is a featured page

In the four Singaporean films that we have analyzed, the gender representations reflect the ideas that Singapore society has about gender, specifically within the themes of Hegemonic Masculinity, Gender roles and stereotypes, as well as Masculinity Crises/De-masculinization, hence supporting our hypothesis that gender representations in Singaporean films reflect the dominant ideas regarding gender in Singapore.

This suggests that films are influenced by the dominant ideas in a culture, and through such realistic portrayals of society, they identify with people of that culture and vice versa. On the other hand, films may also have an impact on society, where their realistic portrayals about gender may reinforce the existing gender norms, in which the Singaporean audience unconsciously internalises and accepts, thus reinforcing and strengthening the culture’s dominant and prevalent ideas about gender. As such, we see a bidirectional relationship between Film and Society.
