Tan Jingliang [Malaysia]: A Place in Displacement

She will be joined by nomadic social entrepreneur Adrianna Tan as they delve into the feeling of displacement in Jingliang’s work shot in Singapore and overseas, and the importance of travel, wanderlust, and the mobility of a filmmaker as a vessel for experiences.
