Competing in France
My banned-in-Malaysia documentary Apa Khabar Orang Kampung will screen in competition next week at the Festival of 3 Continents in Nantes, France.
I will not be able to attend due to my back injury (besides,I am actually due to be in France twice in the first quarter of next year). So I gave away my plane ticket to my able cinematographer Albert Hue, whom I can entrust to enjoy the wines on my behalf. I have worked with him three times: Lelaki Komunis Terakhir (2006), Apa Khabar Orang Kampung (2007) and the forthcoming Malaysian Gods (2008). Since I won't be doing movies after that for some time, we might collaborate on a book instead.
The DVD of Apa Khabar Orang Kampung will be released in Singapore next month, God willing.
