I don't think it was wrong to ban it and it is a sensitive subject.

this is asia and glorifying the acts of insurgents and sabotages / murders committed by them is dishonoring those who fought against them, and I am saying this in the context of not Singapore but other Asian country which too was subject to a 'people's rising' albeit enforced uprising attempted by the maoists.

and the country I am referring still has scars left by the Communist insurgents and easily they (the Communists) want to forget the hundreds of innocents they killed just because they were government employees.

PS, the producer can always release it on YouTube right? no censorship there ...

'Kirsten Han is a Singaporean blogger, journalist and filmmaker. She is also involved in the We Believe in Second Chances campaign for the abolishment of the death penalty. A social media junkie, she tweets at @kixes. The views expressed are her own.

They’d done it before, and they did it again: the Media Development Authority (MDA) on Wednesday banned a film, ensuring that it would not be screened in Singapore.

The reason for their decision, though, was pretty bizarre. Tan Pin Pin’s film, ‘To Singapore, With Love’, was banned because it “undermined national security”
