My new movie Malaysian Gods will be sent to the Malaysian Film Censorship Board today, together with the requisite RM50 fee.
I hope there will be no problems! This is the synopsis:
On 20 September 1998, the recently-sacked Deputy Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim headed a massive anti-government demonstration in Kuala Lumpur. A few hours later, he was arrested at his home. Ten years later, an unnamed man walks along the same path that the demonstrators took. He reminisces about the past and notices the buildings and people around him. It starts to rain but he keeps on walking. Will he reach his destination?
Duration: 68 minutes
I wanted to return to the low-budget starkness of my 6horts. It is a very direct way to communicate but there is (I hope) fun to be had along the way.
The censors will get back to us by 28 August.
