Who We Are

Our Grandfather Story is a digital video publisher that documents, curates and retells authentic stories. Since 2017, we’ve journeyed across Singapore and beyond to uncover everything from the origins of local childhood treats to no-holds-barred conversations with persons with disabilities — and we’ve barely scratched the surface. Treading the thin line between old and new, between classic and contemporary, we present overlooked narratives that are timeless, nostalgic, and yet able to spark a sense of delight.
