Hand To God

If you’re craving some food for thought, catch Hand To God, a provocative dark comedy in which a troubled teen is forced to join his mother’s Sunday School puppet group, and discovers that his sock puppet has a life of its own. The idea of a satanic puppet really got us intrigued, we must say.

This is the perfect chance to uncover the lesser-known stories of Singapore’s shared spaces and way of life. There’s so much going on – heritage trails, tours, open houses and performances all over our little red dot. This year, you get the rare opportunity to enter Caldecott Broadcast Centre and explore the space where local productions were conceived and produced. We’re so stoked to see what goes on behind-the-scenes in the fascinating world of broadcast.
