15Malaysia is a short film project. It consists of 15 short films made by 15 Malaysian filmmakers. These films not only deal with socio-political issues in Malaysia, they also feature some of the best-known faces in the country, including actors, musicians and top political leaders. You may think of them as funky little films made by 15 Malaysian voices for the people of Malaysia.
Each short film are realised every 2 days. Here are some of the clips.
A laugh-out-loud film about a Chinese boy’s misguided attempts at opening an Islamic bank account.
An Indian boy is asked to build a model of his house at school. A tale on the social economic plight faced by many Malaysians.
A teenage Chinese witness to a racially motivated assault is being driven to the police station. A quiet reminder of the dangers of inter-communal suspicion and conflict.
A very silly slapstick comedy demonstrating the proper Islamic way to slaughter chicken.
A quiet tale that reminds us that, despite the multifaceted contradiction of Malaysia, life goes on – even if not all of it is sweet.
