Show Full Description

Retracing the early 19th-century travels of the great Malaysian writer Munshi Abdullah, Amir Muhammad (The Big Durian) and Badrul Hisham Ismail journey across the state of Terengganu and interview its inhabitants, including a dirt bike enthusiast/mechanic, the owner of a camera repair shop, and various wheeler-dealers at the marketplace. Interspersing these present-day observations with excerpts of Abdullah’s text—by turns critical and ironic, some outdated and some still relevant—the directors fashion a warm, sly, humanistic travelogue that explores their countrymen’s beliefs about money, religion, and nationhood.

North American Premiere • Q&A with co-director Badrul Hisham Ismail and composer Zulhezan
