In this 27th commission, titled I Am The Beauty of Your Beauty, I Am The Fear of Your Fear, Tan’s film follows Gita, a young woman grappling with her past and seeking solace in sisterhood in Malaysia. She wrestles her inner demons via martial arts, and through that, find inner strength and beauty within. “The search can only be inwards,” says Tan.
