Film Screening: The Day I Lost My Shadow by K. Rajagopal (25-27 Jan)

Description

Little India is a place not only frequented by tourists but also by Singaporeans who go there for food, shopping and entertainment.


It is embedded in stories that go back two centuries and have contributed to the heritage of the place.


Join acclaimed filmmaker K. Rajagopal as he explores the myth, history and tales of Little India through three films: a man who shirks off the burden of being a coolie to build a business empire; an event that transformed a swampy land to a historical landmark; and a place which is lost but where memories linger on vividly in the reels of life and cinema.



ABOUT K. RAJAGOPAL

K. Rajagopal (b. 1965) has been a Singaporean film director and screenwriter for over 15 years, with his most recent film A Yellow Bird selected for screening at the International Critics’ Week, 2016 Cannes Film Festival.
