Saudade

A film by Russell Adam Morton

Singapore, 2020, 20'

An aural and visual archive narrated entirely in Kristang – a creole language that emerged in 16th century Portuguese colonial Malacca. Using folklore and myth as narrative anchors, Russell Morton weaves his personal identity and allegorical storytelling into cinema to examine the origins of Eurasians in the Malayan region.
