Jagat (ASEAN Director's Showcase) at BFF

Description
Set in the early 1990's, a critical period in Malaysian Indian history, the story subtly underlines the plight of the Malaysian Indian. Forsaken by the estate owners who had employed them for generations and systematically marginalised, they are forced to move to the cities and survive under harsh circumstances. Left out of the nation's urbanisation and development plans, many live in squatters and work at minimum wage jobs. The plot centres on a bright but mischievous 12 year old boy, Appoy and his relationship with his father, Maniam and his uncles, Bala (an ex-drug addict) and Dorai (Mexico) a local gangster.
