Highlights:-“This is footage dating back to the era of colonial time, much of it never seen before, sheds new light on how Singapore became what it is today. A multicultural melting pot from its earliest days, life here was grindingly hard for the majority of people. We see Malay divers, Chinese labourers, Sikh policemen, European colonists as well as dramatic scenes of Hindu fire-walking and mourners at a grand Peranaken funeral. Issues of ethnicity, class and identity are explored through vivid footage that shows the power of the Empire in the bustling port city, while newly discovered home movies capture an intimate glimpse into the lives of Singapore’s elite”.
