Decoding Masked Lions

In this episode of A Bit of Culture, we have Instant Cafe's Jo Kukathas and actor / writer Na’a Murad joining our host Kam Raslan to complete this cultural trident. The trio begins with elucidating the history behind an unforgettable figure; Sang Nila Utama, examining his sentimental values in Singapore's history. Kam then shifts the conversation to storytelling perspectives in films, deciphering the correlation between plot and character in films. We end by talking through the essence of wearing masks, be it ritual or surgical masks - is there more to it than just sheltering one self?
