3. Shirkers.

In the early 90s, three teen zinester girls in Singapore make a movie with their Svengali-like older friend Georges. It’s a feature-length experimental road movie called Shirkers, and it is destined to become a cult classic—until Georges runs away with the footage. Sandi Tan, the wunderkind screenwriter and lead actor of Shirkers, now presents Shirkers (2018), a documentary about the lost film, and an attempt to figure out what happened after Georges left.

Chris Piuma and Nadia Halim saw the film at Hot Docs and discussed it afterwards over drinks.
