Old Romances

The sequel to Old Places, directors Royston Tan, Eva Tang and Victric Thng continue in their archival hunt to document more old places, and memories of the Singapore out there that still exists, if only we look a little bit harder.

"Old places are like old lovers to me, you never forget them" -- Royston Tan

There is romance in every corner we turn. In this sequel to the documentary, Old Places, Old Romances takes us on a journey to experience Singapore through the collective voices of ordinary Singaporeans.

Through their voices, we hear personal stories from members of the public who share
their anecdotes on radio. Everyday spaces come alive with these special memories, which are bonded forever with these places.

Old Romances is a journal of love letters to places that we grew up with.

Featuring: Carnival Beauty Salon at East Coast Road; Sembawang Hill Estate Taxi Service; Pearl Bank Apartments at Chinatown; Kovan Coffeeshop at Simon Road; Thye Moh Chan Cake House at Geylang Road; and many more.

You can buy tickets for the screening through this link NOW!, or if you happen to miss out, the DVD will be available through Objectifs from 19 December.
