Lizard on the Wall
Inspired by the first English-language novel “Inheritance” of acclaimed Singaporean novelist Balli Kaur Jaswal about Singapore’s Punjabi-Sikh diaspora, the film surrounds the story of a Punjabi family and the characters’ struggles against traditions and belonging. The project involves the local Punjabi community, who has often been left out of the larger Singaporean narrative even when they are such an important part of our cultural landscape.
