The resulting film, 7 Letters, offers thought-provoking pieces that revolve around tales of lost love, identity, familial bonds, traditional folklore, community, and more. The seven “letters” to Singapore are fascinating vignettes reflecting the personal and poignant relationship the directors—all award-winning filmmakers—have with the country they call home.
