Channel News Asia is doing a series of docs and interactive material on the prison experiment and gruesome disaster on Pulau Senang in Singapore, 1963. I’m a talking head in one of them. All online now.
Press release, JOGJA-NETPAC Film Festival, December 4, 2022:
The jury for the Indonesian Screen Awards – Filipino filmmaker and curator Elvert Banares, Adelaide Film Festival CEO Mat Kesting and visual artist and historian Sandeep Ray – praised The Exiles as a “moving, tender and yet hopeful documentary that will help us and future generations to understand the events of the not-so-distant past, removed by barely one generation”.
