"…real, even-handed journalism"

​- The Straits Times

Roy Payamal is the wildest busker of a country ranked the world’s most emotionless society. An old-time pioneer of the local scene, dubbed ‘Silver Man’, he creates mindboggling acts, taking his undermined profession as a serious art- but is his faith impossible idealism or an admirable conviction?

Unraveling the nation's bureaucratic reaches, a discourse on culture and expression plays out, co-starring Roy’s eccentric street colleagues. Flowing kaleidoscopically from interviews and fantasy sequences to Roy’s handphone footage of his everyday life, Singapore Minstrel is an invitation into his beautiful mind, a magical, trying universe where art and life dialogue in a tropical dream.

Runtime: 87 mins 

Directed by Xi Jie Ng (Salty), Small Moon Projections

"A film created with so much love, honesty and childlike curiosity: quite possibly one of the best contemporary Singapore films ever made"

– Viknesh Kobinathan, film programmer


​"If one sees this film as Xi Jie's ode to her partner, then it must be one of the most romantic things anyone has done – creating a make-believe world for your other half, when the real world has failed to provide that turf." 

​- SINdie (Singapore Independent Films Only)
