halo friends in Penang Film Club,
Apologies for the lapses in the screenings for last month during the triple by-elections period! To make up for it we are bringing you a new home made film by famed local film maker Fahmi Reza : `Revolusi `48' this sunday Apr 19th 8.00pm, at D' Space (62 Weld Quay-see column on the right for a location map) . Looking forward to see all of you!
P/S: If I'm in time I will screen a short film on the by-elections too! That is if I'm in time-OK?
Revolusi '48 (The Malayan Revolution of '48)
The sequel to Fahmi Reza's cult favourite 10 Tahun Sebelum Merdeka, Revolusi '48 chronicles the largely forgotten armed revolution for national liberation launched against British colonial rule in Malaya 60 years ago. This documentary tells the untold story of those who struggled in the anti-colonial guerrilla war of independence, during the Malayan Revolution of 1948.
