15 Malaysia

15Malaysia is a short film project by Pete Teo which features 15 local independent filmmakers such as Ho Yuhang, the late Yasmin Ahmad, Amir Muhammad and others on their takes on sosio-political issues. Launched on 17 August 2009, each video will be released on the date mentioned. So far, Ho Yuhang's Potong Saga and Yasmin Ahmad's Chocolate has been released. Here's the video:


Potong Saga


Chocolate

Potong Saga is a humorous film about a Chinese boy's misguided attempts to open an Islamic account while Chocolate is a quiet reminder that even with our difference races, we are not that different after all. Out of the two, Potong Saga is a very funny tale. I laughed out loud when I watched it and it was in the middle of the night. Yasmin's film is a sad reminder that we will never be able to watch her movies anymore with her untimely death.

There are more videos yet to be released so go to http://15malaysia.com for more info about the videos and all.
