Tan Pin Pin: Alternative Singapore Chronicles

Invisible City Tan Pin Pin

Film index A to Z

What do a young archaeologist, a Japanese journalist, a botanist, a Second World War veteran, a historian and a photographer have in common? All of them, like Tan Pin Pin, are obsessed with forgotten history and the profound challenges involved in archiving individual and collective memories.
