Hawker Boss by FTTG Media
Hawker Boss documents the life stories of dedicated hawkers in Singapore through a continuous series of short films. This project was birthed from a place of passion for Singapore’s Hawker Culture. In 5 minutes, we get to know our Hawkers intimately as they share their stories of dedication. While listening to their stories, we see the process of cooking Singapore’s favourite dishes from start to finish.
