In 1928, PRC Liu Shuo Tian set sail from Swatow Harbour to Singapore. In 1998, his grandson Liu Xiaoyi began his journey towards Singapore from Swatow Airport. Their paths never crossed; Liu Shuo Tian was a muffled memory framed in a family photo, and Liu Xiaoyi but a name in the family almanac, the erosion of its imprint slow but sure. One story, two lives, seventy years apart; the uncanny overlap of their journeys down south, and how their fates seem to be inextricably entwined. Inspired by real-life events, and spanning a century-tracing the great migration towards Nanyang starting from the 1920s, to the War of Resistance against the Japanese, the Civil War, the Anti-Rightist Campaign by the Communists, the Great Purge and the Socialist Education Movement, the Cultural Revolution, and the eventual Chinese Economic Reform, follow the waves of change and its impact on this family rooted but in flux, their fates and future determined by the change of times. Following successful collaborations on ‘Citizen Pig’ in 2013 and ‘Citizen Dog’ in 2018, Oliver Chong and Liu Xiaoyi embark on the long-awaited last instalment in their ‘Citizen’ trilogy.
