We like bringing audiences to environments and worlds they'd never otherwise experience. Our short film 'Diaspora' is set in a Hokkien opera performance, which is a communal space for people to form collective memories. Through this film we hope to inspire the preservation of our fast-disappearing cultures and traditions such as these, which make Singapore a truly diversified country.
