Made during the golden era of Malay cinema, and inspired by heroic folklore, Sergeant Hassan is a patriotic film that reimagines military and civilian struggles during the Japanese occupation. The legendary P. Ramlee stars in the titular role as a young man who leaves his village to join the Malay Regiment where he rises up the ranks, succeeds in battle and brings peace and victory to his nation and community.

Released a year before Singapore gained full internal self-governance from the British, the film can be viewed as a projection of a nation’s desire and perseverance to attain independence and foster harmony among its people.


This screening is part of a series of film screenings in conjunction with the “New Light on an Old Tale: 80th Anniversary of the Fall of Singapore” programme by the National Archives of Singapore
