Here's a fun weekend activity that also pays tribute to one of Malaysia's greatest filmmaking legends.

GMBB, a creative retail mall in Kuala Lumpur, will be honouring the late Yasmin Ahmad by screening all six of her movies this weekend.

As part of its month-long 'Malaysiaku' campaign to mark National Day and Hari Malaysia celebrations part of its line-up of activities includes the 'Yasmin: Ten Years On' exhibition.

Visitors and lifelong fans can catch all six of Yasmin's films - including the heartwarming 'Sepet' and inspiring 'Talentime' - at no charge at all

With the assistance of Amenic Film Space, a cosy theatre has been set-up specifically for this weekend affair. Each screening will be followed with a discussion by pop culture reviewer and analyser DeconRecon.

The mall will also be decked out in all Yasmin-related things, including a little bus stop for that Insta-worthy couple shot

The bus stop, an iconic scene from 'Sepet', even has little plastic bags you can use for photo props.

There will also be little 'pondoks' featuring photographs of Yasmin which were provided by close friends and collaborators, framed by extracted parts of an essay written by Buku Fixi founder Amir Muhammad.

If you can't make it for the film screenings, then lock down your dates for the magical 'Sepet The Musical' adaptation by Liver & Lung Productions

'Sepet The Musical' is directed and adapted by Shafeeq Shajahan, and stars Joshua Gui and Badrik Bahadur as the titular 'Jason' and 'Orked', respectively.
