Synopsis

Sementara (“transient”) delves into the philosophies, daydreams, and crucial moments of strangers—all from different backgrounds, morals, and perspectives—throughout Singapore during its 50th anniversary.

Using the themes captured through intimate interviews, the film follows threads that lead back to certain universal truths—whether that’s trying to make ends meet, having or lacking an identity, believing or not believing in gods, gender and sexuality, love, sadness, and death.
