MEMORIES OF SINGAPORE RIVER
40 mins | Mandarin Language with English Subtitles
The Singapore River has always been picturesque. Back in the day, thousands of bumboats bustled about, hundreds of godowns tightly lined the riverside, and numerous labourers toiled diligently, drenched in perspiration. Moved by these scenes, our veteran painters took to their brushes, crafting vivid masterpieces brimming with emotion.
In “Memories of Singapore River”, the director compellingly transports viewers back to simpler times through sincere conversations with veteran painters Lim Tze Peng, Tan Choh Tee, Low Puay Hua, and Singaporeans who resided along the river etc.
The Singapore River has endless stories to tell. Amidst the delightful harmony of music and film, let us revisit and rediscover this collective memory worth holding dear.
