The Centrepoint mall of the 1980s used to be a vibrant and colourful hangout popular with youths collectively known as the Centrepoint Kids. Director Wee Li Lin pays tribute to their lively subculture and positive spirit in her film Centrepoint Kidz, chronicling the story of a youth’s initiation into the exclusive group.While these rebels of yesteryear may now have children of their own, the film serves to highlight how these parents once sought unique and daring means of expressing themselves as well.

Now she makes a last ditch attempt at documenting the memories of her family and their livelihoods before they disappear. But many of the places where they started the trade no longer exist – is she one step too late?
