M-C-M’: Utopia Milik Siapa

- Most young Malaysians hope to own the home of their dreams one day. But with the current market situation, this dream will most probably be achieved when we are well over the age of 50. The filmmaker takes us on a journey to discover how this situation came about, what kind of forces are at play and most importantly how can the ordinary person have the power to resist market forces in a capitalist system such as Malaysia’s.

The Silent Riot : The Story No One talked About

- What happens after the end of a political reign? After serving two terms as Sabah’s government, Barisan Nasional led Parti Berjaya is unexpectedly toppled by newcomers Parti Bersatu Sabah, with the cooperation of the United Sabah National Organisation. On the night the 1985 state election results are announced, the secret coalition between PBS and USNO falls apart at the seams, leading to an overnight power struggle that takes place at the State Istana. This would become the precursor to dramatic demonstrations the following year. An incident that is rarely talked about today – making this – The Silent Riot.

10 Tahun Sebelum Merdeka

- Unknown to many, October 20th, 1947 was a historical day in the rakyat’s constitutional struggle for independence from British colonialism. This documentary chronicles the events that culminated in the Malaya-wide ‘Hartal’ day of protest against the undemocratic Federation of Malaya Constitutional Proposals devised by the British Colonial Government and the UMNO, and the rise of the people’s democratic movement in Malaya, ten years before Merdeka.
