Time has passed really quickly since we launched this series, and now we’re already at the second last episode of our 10-part production. It’s been a good journey for us, and we hope you have enjoyed walking it out with us.
The Unseen/Unsaid 10-part mini series
Episode 9. Through Thick and Thin
Derek Foo, Elizabeth (Lizzy) Lee, Lim Song Lip and Jeremy Tan, 2011, 3 minutes, Rating TBA
Almost every day ‘Ah Pui Kia’ wanders the neighbourhood with his pushcart; a cart that had seen much of the excitement and vigour of the past. It has watched the children in the neighbourhood grow up and leave, and the familiar faces of regular clients quietly disappear. It ponders when will be the last time its wooden sheaths are opened and the charcoal fires burn. And it wonders, what will become of it the day the current satay man decides he has finally earned enough to retire to his home in China.
Using narratives from everyday Singaporeans to personify forgotten trades and places, Unseen/Unsaid allow viewers a glimpse into the personal struggles of individual Singaporeans whose stories draw a parallel with the surrounding places and landscapes. The 10-part series is born out of a desire to preserve the fragments of Singapore’s past that is rapidly being replaced by new developments.
One new episode will be released from 29 June, 2011, every Wednesday, 11.00AM on rediscover.sg till the week of 31 August, 2011.
