tentang 15Malaysia - short films

i only heard of it today when all this posts and tweets suddenly appeared about 15Malaysia. i actually ignored it thinking it is another one of those government related thing. i remember thinking 'whatever happened to 1Malaysia? now we have 15???'. i have no problem with the government or opposition and what they say and all.. but i just dont like reading about politics. but thanks to post from Simple White Tofu that i discovered i was so wrong.

check out the website:

15Malaysia is actually a damn cool idea. a great effort to raise the level of Malaysian films and our attitude (and interpretation) towards shorts and indie films. congratulations to everyone who is involved with 15Malaysia.

what it is is a compilations of shorts made by Malaysian directors such as Amir Muhammad, Tan Chui Mui, Woo Ming Jin, and the late Yasmin Ahmad. shorts are released one every 2 to 3 days begining with Ho Yuhang's Potong Saga on August 17th 2009. i personally cant wait to watch Yasmin Ahmad's Chocolate scheduled to be released on the 19th.. which is today ^_^

the first short,Potong Saga, is hilarious. i laughed my head off watching this. i didnt remember who that guy was until i read Justin Hee's post about this. it is that dude who made that Negaraku rap few years back lah. LOL thanks Justin.

also, check out the 28Malaysia project. a 'sub-project' where anyone can make their own short and get it featured on the 15Malaysia website. interested? read the instructions here

NOTE: i am confident most of the shorts will have subtitles. so dont worry about language barriers mkay
