About the director

John Clang is a photographer/visual artist. He was born Ang Choon Leng in Singapore, earned his moniker in 1990 while in the National Service as his badge read C L Ang. In the early 90s, being a Singaporean was extremely difficult to secure meetings locally. However, when he introduced himself as Clang, people were more receptive to meet him, thinking that he was from Europe. It must have been a great disappointment when they met him. -- Wai Thong Chow
