To Singapore, with Love: Singaporean political exiles remember

"Some places are better observed from a distance if you want to grasp their inner essence. For this portrait of her hometown, the tropical economic powerhouse of Singapore, Tan Pin Pin decided on a strictly external perspective. She meets with political exiles in London, Thailand, and Malaysia who had to leave the city thirty–five or fifty years ago–and who are to this day not permitted to return unless they die and their relatives bring back their ashes. The protagonists of the film fought for increased democracy and for Singapore to be freed from colonialism. They escaped long prison sentences and judicial capriciousness, but at the price of exile. They have a heightened view of the city today, full of dreams yet also analytical: To Singapore, with Love [星国恋] is a homage to individual fighters whose lives have been shaped by emigration. They tell their stories more as utopians than as victims, opening up amazing perspectives on an ultra–modern city in a democratic coma as well as on life in exile, whose path is never straightforward for those who do not lose sight of their goals, even when far away from home."

Tsunami: The Survivors' Stories

"Six months on from one of the world's most devastating tsunamis, Panorama returns to Japan to hear remarkable tales of survival amid the epic destruction. Piecing together new footage of the wave, reporter Paul Kenyon tells the dramatic stories of those who managed to escape when so many did not. The film also follows those returning briefly to homes abandoned within the radioactive no–go area around the Fukushima nuclear power plant, and asks what the future holds for the thousands affected."

Mercedes: Escape the Map

"In Escape the Map, an interactive UK effort by Mercedes Benz, consumers get to help a woman and her car escape a sinister Streetview version of Hong Kong. A TV spot directed by Carl Erik Rinsch directs viewers to a websitewhere they find 'Marie' and her C 63 AMG Coupe trapped in Streetview. Marie needs to escape from the map before her face is forever blurred–out, like everyone else who's pictured there. Participants must help crack the clues in order to be entered for a chance to win the car.

The campaign, aimed at attracting a younger consumer to the Mercedes–Benz brand, is by AMV.BBDO. It also includes a YouTube Homepage Takeover, bus advertising, and a cover wrap in free commuter newspaper Metro that uses augmented reality app Blippar."
