Artist In The House: The Day I Lost My Shadow with K Rajagopal; Making of "Syed Alwi Road"


Meet the artists whose artworks are featured in Once Upon a Time in Little India and learn more about their works, their inspiration and their views on Little India!

The Day I Lost My Shadow is a trilogy set in three iconic locations within Singapore’s Little India district: Race Course Road, Campbell Lane and Syed Alwi Road. The notion of re-examining history by truth and myth through visual storytelling serves as the inter-connecting thread between the three short films, and the films offer glimpses of Little India through the 19th and 20th centuries.

Join us for an "Artist in the House" session with filmmaker K Rajagopal as he talks about the making of Syed Alwi Road.
