"Belong follows the prolific Vietnamese-American contemporary artist Richard Streitmatter-Tran as he reflects on his life, his work and his legacy. His thoughts and memories are framed by lyrics from the 5 songs that have been most significant to his journey so far. Belong was filmed across Singapore during Richard’s residency at the NTU Centre for Contemporary Arts, in addition to scenes filmed at his studio in Ho Chi Minh City. Belong is the second in the 'How We Live Now' series of short films, exploring the significance of music in people's lives.
