So guys, how was/is your weekend? Sabine, sorry if I can't reply to your email just yet - will find the time to do so!
Last night (Saturday) I went for this documentary-screening called, "Running", about foreign workers and refugees in Malaysia. It was really interesting and it was definitely an eye-opener to the mishandlings of the country officers towards refugees, especially. I have the DVD copy if anyone is interested.
Tonight, there'll be another film show called, Revolusi '48 (The Malayan Revolution of '48) from the director who brought us the 20 minutes-film, "Sepuluh Tahun Sebelum Merdeka" (Fahmi Reza).
In fact, he'll be there, too!
Details are as follows:
Venue: D' Space(3rd floor, 62 Weld Quay)
Organisers: the Penang Film Club (we meet fortnightly
This is a great opportunity to meet this filmmaker, and you can definitely ask him questions, too. This will def suit those who love history or love Malaysia for all its beauty and pain.
Go for it, if it's not too late!
