(G)olden Days and Hearts of (G)old: Exploring love and ageing in Baltimore and Singapore through anthropological filmmaking
This is a two-part film projecting exploring the lives and aspirations of older adults through film, more specifically through a lens of love. Part 1 focuses on the integral part that faith has played in the lives of 3 elderly women living in an assisted care facility in Southeast Baltimore. Part 2 traces the development of Singapore over the last 50 years through the memories of 5 Singaporeans from the Pioneer Generation. These films are standalone projects but have also informed both my senior honors theses.
