Thanks to Momo’s info, I got to know about the Freedom Film Fest going on at Wawasan Open University.
They have screening of short movies about freedom. I only managed to catch two short films, Tiffin and Ayah, Kenapa Tebang Pokok Pisang? The first one is about an Indian girl brought up in a Chinese family. See the racial discrimination and those subtle messages hidden in the film. I only caught part of the movie.
The next one is a Bahasa Malaysia/Tamil call Ayah, Kenapa Tebang Pokok Pisang? I like this one. About how the rich gets richer and the poor continues to suffer. A film about the farce of NEP and how it is supposed to help Malays but instead, makes many suffer.
The Freedom Film Fest goes on till Sunday so catch some of the movies. Screening time can be found here. Go to the fifth floor of Wawasan Open University on Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah. The guard will allow you to park your car at the car park on Level 4.
After the movie, we went down to the grounds on WOU to take pictures. Doh, I forgot to put my DSLR battery so I was left with only a P&S camera. Nevertheless, the photos were so nice.
