Snow City (2011)

In hot tropical Singapore, a traveler stumbles upon polar bears, a road tunnel grand opening and office workers in cubicles. Deadpan in tone, surprising in content, the film captures a mood of a place where time stands still.

“From this surprising stroll around Singapore, there wells up a discreet yet absurd humour”

“With Tan’s unadorned visual style, Snow City gently earns your attention instead of demanding it. at heart, a film about the importance of seeing and perspective”
– Sindie
