4D, Class Activity: Artist Statement

Azmir explores the different side of the Singapore nightlife, through a documentary that brings you to the western side of Singapore, the Jurong Fishery Port, that only operates while most of the people in this tiny island are sound asleep. He showcases a stark contrast between the bustling fish market and what goes on behind the scenes before the fishes arrive to the neighbourhood markets as well as scenes from the quiet neighbourhoods of Singapore. Drawing inspiration from Ben Brown’s ‘The Great Big Story: Journey to a Costa Rican Food Forest’, the documentary aims to put in light the hard work and dedication of the fishmongers that works through the night to bring fish right to your kitchen.
