SFIFF ’05: Malaysian edition
As Robin Jean pointed out a week or so ago, the 48th San Francisco International Film Festival is in full swing from April 21st to May 5th. Some of you may be overwhelmed by the movie choices this year, so allow me to recommend a few movies that hail from a rather underrepresented country in international cinema — Malaysia. Note that I am extremely biased because this is also the same country where I was born and raised.
There are not one, not two, but a total of five movies from Malaysia at this year’s festival — quite a record in my book. And I plan to be at all of them. Here’s a listing of all the Malaysian movies this year, complete with date, time, and location, after the jump. I particularly recommend Princess of Mount Ledang and Split Screen: Two Films by Amir Muhammad. No need to thank me, really.
- Princess of Mount Ledang
