Shirkers' Sandi Tan on having her film stolen and then somehow reappear decades later
Sandi Tan made a ripple when, at only 19 years old, she wrote, starred in and shot a full-length feature film with her friends in Singapore. The film, called Shirkers, received a lot of buzz in Singapore's film community — but it never saw the light of day.
Shirkers remained lost until two decades later when it suddenly re-entered Tan's life. She talks with Tom Power about her new documentary — also called Shirkers — and what it was like to lose a project that meant so much to her.
