Award-winning British-Malaysian musical theatre company Liver & Lung celebrates the new year with their debut short film: MAHSURI (& OTHER PECULIAR TALES).

The Story:
Trailer | Spotify Soundtrack
On a late Friday afternoon, five students, including socially anxious Adam (Badrish Isdin), are sent to detention. As soon as they settle down, the atmosphere unexpectedly shifts - lights start to flicker and the students find themselves locked in the now eerie classroom. In a dusty corner of the room, Adam stumbles upon a mysterious book called Mahsuri (& Other Peculiar Tales) which begs to be read.

Slowly, he starts to read the book and, in a flash, the classroom and its occupants morph into the backdrop for an age old Malaysian legend. The kids find themselves lost in 18th century Langkawi and Adam must help magical Mahsuri (Badrika Baluch), wife of warrior Wan Derus (Joshua Gui), escape from the wrath of her mother in law after false accusations of adultery and dishonesty are thrown on her.

The film will be screened on Peatix Live.
