I hardly watched Malay movies except for the many P Ramlee’s movies which was a must, but, when I saw SEPAT, I was truly impressed and amazed by the the story telling ability of the director Yasmin Ahmad. To me, Yasmin was really a good Malaysian Director and her work in SEPAT was thought provoking where she takes us to look at how two young lovers from totally different background cope with family and social pressure. If anyone of you have not seen SEPAT, watch it and see what a meant.
Even Yasmin’s Anak Malaysia a Petronas TV commercial was also too good for our time when our racial harmony is so fractured and see how Yasmin in this commercial shows us how racial harmony should breathe in Malaysia.
It is sad and a great loss for all Malaysians to hear that Yasmin Ahmad had passed away.
I extend my heartfelt condolences to her husband and family.
