Danger Pain Harm
If fear was a landscape, how would it be navigated? Why is this terrain so dangerous, yet so alluring?
Danger Pain Harm is an evocative study of the duality that is fearlessness and fear - the symbiotic relationship between the two that carves the textures of our everyday existences.
My infinite thanks to the amazing people at Finding Pictures for taking my writing and making it into something so beautiful.

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.
