In Time to Come
NAME OF FILM: IN TIME TO COME
DIRECTOR(S): Tan Pin Pin
GENRE: Documentary Film
SYNOPSIS: Returning to themes of redevelopment and excavation of the past, Tan Pin Pin carefully probes the topography of Singapore with long, slow-burning shots of schoolchildren, shopping malls, and workers, digging up a time capsule buried by the state. Less overtly political than her film To Singapore, with Love (Art of the Real 2014), In Time to Come questions Singaporeans’ relationship to time and each other. In every quotidian interaction we witness, an underlying question burns: how can true connection take place when so much has been preshaped and destroyed by a government that’s only looking out for its own interests?
