Coming to Seattle


Lelaki Komunis Terakhir will screen on June 15 and 18 at the Seattle International Film Festival. This is the second US festival after its sold-out screening at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival last month.

Seattle is a bigass festival that screens about 300 films this year. It is now in its 32nd year. As far as I know this is the first time it has selected something from Malaysia. So if you know anyone in the city of Starbucks and Nirvana (I'm showing my age here), do spread it around.

Hi Amir,

congrats for getting into the Seattle Intl Film Fest!

have been following the developements of The Last Communist with much interest.

it's a shame that the MPs and the senators get to watch your movie while we the public are left to ponder on what might have been a great movie.
it's sad to note that they value their political influence more than our judgement - though it is not a big surprise.
it's funny how the media has shown polls for other rather trivial things yet for so-called "controversial" movies and issues, the public has not much of a say.

i have yet to see the movie and i'm hoping someday i will.

my brother has caught your other movie "The Big Durian" in Singapore and said he met you and said you remind him of michael moore.

anyways, all the best in seattle!

Hai Amir,

here Intan from Ipoh and now studying in Taiwan~ how's the Seattle IFF? ^^
Actually, I'm wondering if there's any way to find "The LAst Communist" in Taiwan! :P
Because my dad said he was in the movie for about 30sec and was giving a talk (or presentation?). Haha! I'm curious lah!

Anyway, All the best~! Go!
