Malaysian Official Oscar's Submission


Liew Seng Tat's 2nd film is a caustic, allegorical comedy that skewers fundamentalism, xenophobia and superstitions. In rural Malaysia, Pak Awang tries to convince other villagers to help him carry an abandoned house into the village for his betrothed daughter. But when a runaway African immigrant is spotted, the villagers mistakenly believe that a spirit is on the loose. Thus begins a series of wild mishaps that lead the villagers to try to ‘protect’ themselves from so-called ‘danger’.

English subtitles only.

17:00

Post-screening Talk: Post-Mortem on Liew Seng Tat’s MEN WHO SAVE THE WORLD with Liew Seng Tat (Director) and Sharon Gan (Producer)

With its director and producer, we trace through the genesis of the film after the director’s directorial debut, the Rotterdam Tiger winner FLOWERS IN THE POCKET. We follow the project’s development at Cannes Cinefondation, Sundance Film Lab and TorinoFilmLab to its financing at Cinemart. Who did they co-produce with, and what funds did they apply for? And how different is the final film from its script?


The Talk will be in English.
