Platform 1932: A Documentary On Tanjong Pagar Railway Station

Platform 1932 is a documentary that pieces together a picture of the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station in its grander days by bringing to light memories of it and current hopes for it from different individuals whose lives are closely linked to the existence of the station. These interwoven stories provide an insight on how the station managed to survive modernisation and more critically, continue to play an understated role in sustaining a connection between two different societies.
