Production Talk on Tiong Bahru
Melody Chow from SINdie goes behind the scenes of Tiong Bahru through the eyes of Nooraini Shah and Wen Piao who have kindly shared their 2 cents’ worth on the film.
“I found their vision of the civic life project provided great insight into life in Tiong Bahru. Although the market has been recently renovated, it still retains the charm of Old Tiong Bahru, which comes through into the film,” said Wen Piao.
“Well i got involved with the Tiong Bahru project as i was an intern at Zhao Wei Films during the school holidays. Zhao Wei Films was a major collaborator on this project.”
“Tiong Bahru may not be seen very much as a heritage venue due to the shopping malls and new HDB buildings built. Despite so, the history lies within the people. And its these few memories that are of heritage value more than mere buildings that could be replaced, and memory never do,” said Noraini.
