The Travelling Cat Chronicles
Adapted from the international bestselling novel by Hiro Arikawa.
It’s not the journey that counts, but who’s at your side.
Satoru (Sôta Fukushi) has known this since childhood, when his kitty Hachi was always by his side through good times and bad.
As an adult, Satoru adopted a stray he named Nana (the voice of Mitsuki Takahata), after the poor thing was hit by a car and miraculously survived. Satoru must unfortunately now give his beloved cat away, so he travels to meet some important people in his life who might adopt Nana.
Set against the backdrop of Japan’s changing seasons and portrayed with a rare gentleness and humour, Nana’s story explores the wonder and thrill of life’s unexpected detours. It is about the value of friendship and solitude, and knowing when to give and when to take. The movie shows, above all, how acts of love, both great and small, can transform our lives.
This film is suitable for families (ages 10 and above) and touches on themes such as responsible pet ownership, and re-homing of pets.
Release Date: 26 October 2018
Language: Japanese with English & Chinese Subtitles

Undangan ke Baitullah: Pilgrims’ Stories from the Malay World to Makkah
In conjunction with 2018’s theme of Nilai (Values), this exhibition delves into the significance of Kampong Gelam as an important port town where Muslims from all over the Malay Archipelago would congregate to prepare for the onward steamship passage to Mākkah in the late 19th century into the early 1970s.
Undangan ke Baitullah adds a Southeast Asian perspective to this annual global movement of Muslims, which for many pilgrims, would be a once-in-a-lifetime journey of faith.
Venue: Malay Heritage Centre
Date: 12 October 2018 – 23 June 2019
