tentang 15Malaysia - The Son by Desmond Ng
a drama that addresses the issue of racism in Malaysia. it is slow and short, brief almost. it acknowledges that racism lingers and sometimes a threat in malaysia's multi-racial community (because i heard everyone is a little bit racist) but i think the coolest thing is the director's choice of how to tell the story.
i find myself initially wondering why cant every dad be like his dad? later as everything is digested i realize i really like the father character. the actor made a very good job, and the writer and director made a very good character.
'The Son' is one of my favourite short in 15Malaysia. simply brilliant. thanks Desmond Ng for making a cool short with a serious issue and very good lesson
