Whats inside this boxed set?
Back of Box “If a city could speak of its loves and regrets, Tan Pin Pinís Invisible City, Singapore GaGa, and Moving House suggest that we would do well by listening to the music its people make, the stories they tell and the silences they maintain. Each of the films questions the relationship between these individual expressions with the collective experience in Singapore. Tan Pin Pinís voice is thoughtful and generous. The award-winning films in this Collection never miss the humour, warmth and passions of the city-stateís residents.”
