Celebrate Merdeka with Yasmin Ahmad: Mukhsin 3pm, 27 Aug (Thurs)
"I thought that Mukhsin was wonderfully written. Its not just about entertainment. There's tonnes of subtle messages that I think Yasmin was trying to bring across. And yes, it might be confusing to some of you (especially if you didn't watch Sepet and/or Gubra 76 times).
As Malaysians, you will relate to the protrayal of attitudes in the movie. For example, even kids can be really sharp tongued (complete with the shrill annoying voice) and characters that simply bad mouth people all movie long. (The questions is...) how you can be such a busybody and talk about people, when ur own life isn't sorted out?"- Fithrinatasha
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.
