The Road Less Travelled revolves around the lives and struggles of four young friends who try to break from their family and societal expectations to pursue their aspirations in arts and music. They soon come to realise that the road ahead is not altogether a smooth one.

A debut feature by Singaporean director Lim Suat Yen, The Road Less Travelled is the first local film to feature xinyao (a repertoire of Mandarin songs composed, written and performed by young Singaporeans) showcasing music written by Cultural Medallion recipient Liang Wern Fook. The film was restored by the Asian Film Archive in 2023 using the preserved 35mm picture and sound negatives.

This screening is part of the programme Reciprocal 2024. For more screenings of the programme, please click here.
