What is Old Romances all about ? 

Synopsis

There is romance in every corner we turn. In this sequel to the documentary, Old PlacesOld Romancestakes 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 shared their anecdotes on radio. Everyday spaces come alive with these special memories, which are bonded forever with these places.

    Hi Geng Hui

    Good day! My name is Clara and I am a final year communications student from NTU. As part of my final year project, I’m doing some research into heritage related films in Singapore.

    I’ve read your blog entry on Old Romances, and was wondering if you managed to catch the film? If so, I would be keen to hear more of your thoughts on it as well as to chat a bit on your opinions of the local filmmaking scene.

    As such, may I request a short chat either on the phone or in person, perhaps sometime next week? Do let me know whether you would be agreeable to such an arrangement. If you would like to find out more about our project, do visit our facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pastpresentense or feel free to drop me any questions at all.

    Thank you for your time and I hope to hear from you soon!

    Sincerely,
