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.
Visitors and lifelong fans can catch all six of Yasmin's films - including the heartwarming 'Sepet' and inspiring 'Talentime' - at no charge at all
Here are the list of films and its timings:
- Rabun (7 September, 11am),
- Sepet (7 September, 2pm),
- Gubra (7 September, 5pm),
- Mukhsin (8 September, 11am),
- Muallaf (8 September, 2pm), and
- Talentime (8 September, 5pm).
There will also be a screening of 'What Yasmin Left Behind', a short student documentary on the works the late filmmaker left behind upon her passing, on both days at 4.30pm.
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.
The interactive musical, which features music composed by Shafeeq and select songs by Badrish Bahadur, is conducted in an intimate setting for a fully immersive experience.
We got to watch a preview of it and confirm that it will melt hearts and leave you 'aww'-ing all the way home.
GMBB's 'Malaysiaku' campaign is currently ongoing until 29 September. More details:
