Through The Familiar Trope

This week, our culture vultures are back at it again with yet another exhilarating episode where they grapple three intriguing topics in the world of arts and pop culture. Kam starts off by exploring the deeper layers of significance in revisited materials. ABOC first-timer, Na’a then keeps the ball rolling with his thoughts on the Rudyard Kipling’s classic, The Jungle Book and then ponders on the state of children’s film and literature today; are they being too safe-guarded? Jo finishes the discussion with her take on the infamous trope in pop culture, Chekhov's Gun.

Produced by: Ali Johan
