Old Places back to movies

  • Country: Singapore
  • Director: Royston Tan, Eva Tang & Victric Thng
  • Year: 2010
  • Duration: 77'

Old Places shows us oft-forgotten, yet almost immediately familiar, areas in Singapore through the eyes of ordinary people. Prior to the production, members of the public were invited to call in to the radio to recount their significant memories of places in Singapore - places that will soon disappear or be redeveloped. These personal stories come alive through the callers’ narration and the stunning visuals that capture the nostalgia and hidden beauty of the places. Old Places celebrates personal stories of joy, love or loss, and weaves it into a tapestry of memories amounting to a collective and yet typical story of life in Singapore.
