‘Shirkers’ Trailer: A Singaporean Director Goes Searching for Her Missing Film in Mysterious Netflix Documentary
Posted on Wednesday, September 19th, 2018 by Hoai-Tran Bui
When Sandi Tan was a teenager in 1992 Singapore, she decided to make her first movie. It was to be a slasher road movie and it was going to be Singapore’s first indie cult hit — if it ever made it to the screen. But it never did.
More than 20 years later, Tan uncovers her lost film reels and the mysterious man who spirited them away all those years ago in Shirkers, a documentary that won the World Cinema Documentary Directing Award at this year’s Sundance. Now Netflix has released the first Shirkers trailer to take you on the journey that Tan makes to uncovering this alluring mystery.
