Preview

Tan Pin Pin’ s 55-minute “Singapore Gaga” (2005), a tribute to the buskers, street vendors and assorted urban characters of the city state, was the first documentary from Singapore that got an theatrical release in the city state. In the essay the director describes how she managed to get the off-beat film shown on the big screen despite next to no marketing budget.
