Changi Airport continues its mission of connecting people with the launch of “Where Dreams Take Flight: Singaporean Short Stories”, a compendium of three short films by local talents.

The first of the films to be launched, “Auntie Oh Lives In Your Memories”, will be participating in the Singapore International Film Festival, and made its debut on 4 December 2021.

Through the protagonist, Auntie Oh, who works at Changi Airport’s baggage claim division, the lives behind the abandoned luggage of passengers are shared to re-ignite the desire to travel and to experience.

Coming at a time when travel is re-opening but weighed by restrictions still, Changi Airport bridges the divide between Covid-19 and human connections with these stories of travellers and the connections they form with their families and with society.

The films were produced by up-and-coming local filmmakers Eysham Ali, Kathleen Bu, Li Kayue and Zon Chan. The quartet are mentored by Li Lin Wee and Huang Junxiang, award-winning local filmmakers who have worked with Changi Airport Group on projects such as the “SG50 I’m Home” video.

The exclusive release of “Auntie Oh Lives In Your Memories” will be made available on Changi Airport’s website and Facebook page on 6 December 2021. The two other short films, “Last Call’ and “VuJa De”, will be released in 2022.

More details on the films will be released at Where Dreams Take Flight - Singaporean Short Stories.
