Kirsten Tan
Popeye (working title)

KIRSTEN TAN was awarded $25,000 in support of the narrative project Popeye (working title). On a chance encounter, a disenchanted architect bumps into his long-lost elephant on the streets of Bangkok. Excited, he takes his elephant on a redemptive journey across Thailand, in search of the farm where they grew up together–only to discover the truth about himself and the life he callously left behind.
