If this isn’t commitment to the Arts, I don’t know what is. Kudos Sharifah Amani. And thank you Kak Yas. Keep on pushing the envelope. And all the fuss about Sharifah’s shaved head? Screw ’em.

Sepet : The Malaysian Movie

“Sepet” is a very misleading title for a movie. Why? Because some people may think it’s a Malay movie and avoid it at all costs. Movies like “Gerak Khas: The Movie” does not help, not one bit. This was apparent when I had to explain to my colleagues that it is a Malaysian movie using everyday languages like English, Malay and Chinese. Malaysians being naturally multi-lingual can really relate to the movie, because the dialogue is very real. I think it’s quite brave of Yasmin to actually do this.

[UPDATE: (Yes, 16 years later)] You can watch Sepet for free on YouTube, until 5 June 2020. You can also have cast and crew such as Sharifah Amani, Ng Choo Seong, as well as producer Abang Odeng and more answer questions o the comments section throughout the week.
