The Impossibility of Knowing

Synopsis

This film revisits locations where crimes or accidents have taken place, to find out if these places can transcend time to engender their own significance. With the barest of details gleaned from contemporaneous news clippings, the filmmaker reconstructs the incidents via a dry voice-over. The film is narrated by LIM Kay-tong, the presenter for a Singaporean true crime series, Crime Watch.
