Good morning everyone! Here's a chance to win TIONG BAHRU on DVD!
Shot on 35 mm widescreen and lensed by leading Singaporean Director of Photography Daniel Low, TIONG BAHRU was Joe and Christine’s first project outside the UK and Ireland, and their most amitious Civic Life film to date . It involved months of consultation with the community of the Tiong Bahru estate, during which 100s of residents shared with Joe and Christine their memories of the estate, their feelings towards it and their hopes for its future. From these dialogues, the filmmakers then developed the storylines which would make up the final narrative which centres around 3 characters on a day on which makes a crucial decision. All of the parts in the film were played by volunteers who came forward to take part. You can read about the process by checking the stories below:
