Using mass displays like the National Day Parade, school cheers and public announcements as well as performances by harmonica virtuoso Yew Hong Chow, avant garde pianist Margaret Leng Tan and itinerant buskers, we discover Singaporeans’ complex relationship with Singapore. This documentary touches on the desire to be heard, to be seen and to belong, both to Singapore and to the present. Singapore Gaga has received rave reviews from the local media.
