Uncut


I am pleased to announce that Lelaki Komunis Terakhir has been passed without cuts by the Malaysian Film Censorship Board! It was submitted 2 weeks ago and the confirmation came yesterday.

This paves the way for the commercial release I was hoping for all along, which can now take place hopefully in May. Making it the first local documentary to get a cinema release in Malaysia. (Only three other foreign ones have ever screened here, too: Fahrenheit 911, Spellbound and March of the Penguins, all in the past 2 years). This could be the start of something, no?

Hey Munshi,
Spooky or not? My next movie (after Susuk) will be called "Kisah Pelayaran Munsyi ke Peru." Planning to shoot in December. I found your blog while Googling that feller recently...
