Saudade

Saudade_01.png

Saudade is an audio-visual archive of the vanishing language of Kristang – a Portuguese-Malaccan creole which was once the mother tongue of the Eurasian community within Singapore and Malaysia. Using folklore and myth as narrative anchors, the film reimagines the rituals of the early Eurasians to tell a story of culture-displacement and, consequently, the loss of a language.

Saudade will be followed by a live online Q&A with Russell Adam Morton which will be live-streamed from the cinema to Selects.
