Old of Things


In 2016, the residents of the Dakota Crescent estate received notice of eviction in lieu of redevelopment. The film grants exclusive access into the life of Yee Geok Eng, a resident in her late 60s, as she navigates the different phases of redefining everything she understands as home; the search for security, comfort, and family amidst an upheaval of life as she knows it. This film is a personal memento, but also a monument to all the spaces of memory that have quietly become forgotten histories.
