The Old Man and The River
Chance upon this touching clip by Royston Tan....it in dialect and it touches me at least.
Quoted from http://ndp2.staging.qala.com.sg/cont...ingmemory.aspx
This film is directed by award-winning local film-maker, Royston Tan, whose trademark style of infusing live takes and local dialects captures the very essence of life around historic Singapore River.
Recounted through the eyes of Chia, an elderly road sweeper; his close links with the river, his first arrival as an immigrant from China. Chia is a prime example of a LIVING MEMORY.
