Growing up in Singapore, Sandi Tan dreamed of making movies Falling into a fevered obsession of pop culture, she guzzled film magazines and manufactured an underground bootleg system to watch unavailable American films. By 1992, Sandi knew it was time to make her contribution to the art form. With the help of her friends, and a cryptic director named Georges Cardona, Shirkers was born. However, a newly independent Singapore's first guerrilla road movie was cut short when Georges fled with the footage - and the movie disappeared forever. Twenty years later, the 16mm raw film has been found setting Tan off on an odyssey of both self and rediscovery as she pieces together the mystery of who Georges really was, and what her film really meant. An authentic, honest and fiercely independent examination that could be made by no one else, Tan's achingly personal documentary offers one of the most significant cinematic experiences of the year.
