This year, at the Malaysiaku Film screening, we'll be exploring education and inequity through Malaysian made films: Jagat (2016) by Shanjhey Kumar and Gadoh (2006) by Brenda Denker and Namron.

This film screening aims to gather people from various backgrounds to talk about education in conjunction with the month we celebrate our identity as Malaysians. Also, we take this opportunity to appreciate the works of our creative talents that unite Malaysians through their medium: film with a feature of board games.

Jagat (Tamil: ஐகாட், slang derived from Malay word jahat, loosely translated as ‘bad’) is a 2015 Malaysian crime drama film.[7]directed by Shanjhey Kumar Perumal. Set in the early 1990s, a critical period in Malaysian Indian history, the coming-of-age story subtly underlines the plight of the Indian Malaysians who were forsaken by the estate owners and forced to move to the cities, surviving under harsh circumstances. The story follows a mischievous 12-year-old boy named Appoy and his relationships with his father, Maniam, and his uncles, former drug-addict Bala and local gangster Dorai.

The film had won the Best Malaysian Film award in the 28th Malaysia Film Festival in 2016, whereas its director Shanjhey Kumar won the award for Best Director.[8]. The film also represent Malaysia at Asean Film Fest 2017.

"Gelap. Apa yang aku lihat hanyalah kegelapan. Mata ini untuk melihat, tapi apa yang nak dilihat jika semuanya gelap? Ini cerita aku, cerita kami, cerita kita yang hidup dalam kegelapan." Kalil, Gadoh.

Gadoh by Brenda Denker and Namron (2006) is a film of racially segregated school students, who through a theater instructor explored the roots of their mindset and grew into united poeple with a common story.

We will contact to confirm venue by 30th August.
