(22 June 2019)
Coffee/Tea Reception 2:00pm
Join us for a special presentation of M for Malaysia which documents the 2018 Malaysian General Elections when the people of Malaysia, led by a 92-year-old former Prime Minister, who overthrew one of the longest ruling governments in the world. Despite endless barriers thrown at them, the tense campaign pushed on with the most surprising result in the country’s history. The film had unprecedented access to Dr. Mahathir during the election campaign and documents his final political battle at 92 years old. Working with his political nemesis whom he had once demonized and jailed, Dr. Mahathir sets out to redeem himself and right his wrongs in order to save his country.
A Q&A Session with the film’s directors Dian Lee and Ineza Roussille is only available on 21 June, 2019.
