Get in the Merdeka spirit with local films Redha & Sepet, both of which touches on issues that are considered to be a taboo or sensitive – race and autism.
The public is invited to watch these films and be part of Blank Canvas discussions with the filmmakers and activists. Leading the discussions areSheahnee Iman Lee (emcee, former NTV7 host) and Nazurudin Habibur Rahman (actor and TV host). To discuss Redha, a 2016 film on a family coping with raising a child with autism, Sheahnee will be joined by Tunku Mona Riza, producer and director of Redha; and Feilina
Faisol, chairman of National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM). Redha (2016) is the debut film of Tunku Mona Riza. Similarly, discussing Sepet and racism in Malaysia, will be filmmaker Yasmin Ahmad’s sister, Datin Orked Ahmad. Sepet (2004) is Yasmin Ahmad’s breakout film and launched the acting career of Sharifah Amani.
To facilitate community links and interconnection, KelipKelip is running a Blank Canvas session on
each night. Audience members are allowed to propose discussion topics, and the larger audience can join
and leave discussion groups according to individual interest. Through these sessions, they hope that
Malaysians will be activated to contribute back to their communities.
