Celebrate Merdeka with Yasmin Ahmad: Talentime 11am, 31 Aug
"A talent search competition has matched two hearts - that of Melur, a Malay-mixed girl and an Indian male student, Mahesh. Melur, with her melodious voice, singing whilst playing the piano is one of the seven finalists of the Talentime competition of her school organised by Cikgu Adibah. Likewise Hafiz, enthralling with his vocalist talent while playing the guitar, divides his time between school and mother, who is hospitalised for brain tumor." - Movies.yahoo.com
Kelip-Kelip, a community organization based in Penang, with the support of The Star Pitt St. and Think City will be bringing movies like Muallaf, Rabun, Talentime, Sepet, Gubra and Mukhsin back to the big screen in conjunction with Merdeka month! Please come armed with snacks and a packet of tissue paper.
This casual event is open to members of the public for free, to inspire the celebration of our diversity as Malaysians, and also to celebrate Yasmin's life as a well-loved curator of our diversity and culture through film-making.
There will be a MERCY Yasmin Ahmad Children's Fund donation box to channel funds to Yasmin's favorite charity organization instead of charging for entrance. We welcome any donations.
