Tang Dan, Salleh Kamil, S. Kadarisman

1958 / Digital Beta / PG

In Malay with English Subtitles

Produced by Shaw Brothers and directed by Phani Majumdar, Sri Menanti is a film about an interracial romance that faced opposition from close-minded parents and the forces of racial and religious conservatism. Malay female star Zaiton and Hong Kong leading man, Paul Chang, take on the roles of the star-crossed lovers. Under Majumdar’s lyrical direction, Sri Menanti is imbued with moments of poetry that perfectly encapsulate the pictorial ideals of Nanyang at the time, making this film an underrated gem in the annals of Malay film production in Singapore.
