First Look: The Kallang Wave1 min readReading Time: < 1 minute
From the official website:
The Kallang Wave is the story of Singapore told through the dreams and pain of the nation’s footballers and the fans and staff who stand behind them. Glory, frustration, and a mounting sense of despair colour an impassioned debate about the heart of sport and the realities of economic prosperity. From interviews and match footage to history and coverage of significant events, the film gives a voice to the people behind the scenes, and tries to give credit to the unsung heroes of Singapore’s football legacy.
Directed by Yanfeng Lee & Hanafi Ramdan.
Produced by Zayed bin Abdul Aziz Talib & Mohamed Fairil bin Sugang.
Cinematography by Jaron Chan & Yanfeng Lee.
Released in 2007.
Thanks Nicholas, I've convey your very kind comments to the production team behind The Kallang Wave, we've very touched that we're able to reach out to Singaporeans with this story. : )
Watching this trailer made my eyes welled. I was in Old Trafford in Feb to watch the England vs Spain friendly, yesterday I was in Craven Cottage watching Fulham vs Aston Villa. All the passion, taunting chants, profanities at unfair referee decisions and stamping of feet. An event that brings singaporeans together and for 90 mins, forget about their differences. All I could reference with are the times in the National Stadium, watching the Malaysian Cup. Be it club or country, Singapore soccer must be revived. No Government can do it, only the people can. When a club is broke, the Government doesn't give money, the fans and patrons do. No heroes should be left forgotten. Great job to the team who made "Kallang Wave" Keep it up! Singapore needs people like you!
