Royston Tan’s short film ‘Ah Kong’

Ah Kong [阿公], is a common term for Grandfather in Singapore. This new short film by Royston Tan is an approach by him to bring up the health topic ‘Dementia’ to the mass.


A favourite grandson attempts to restore his grandfather’s ailing memory. A famous chicken seller, a charming dancer and a ladies’ man… this is what his grandfather used to be, before he was diagnosed with dementia.

However it’s not the past his grandfather forgets. In fact, it’s all he can remember. What he has forgotten is how to live in the present
