Gadoh (Especially for Malaysians)

*****

If you are a Malaysia and are sick of the racial tensions that is created due to our government's clever system of segregation,
and if you miss the good old days where racism seem so distant away,
and want a good movie to top it all up,

Watch GADOH.


The government, as usual, have banned this film in Malaysia but you can still watch it in Youtube, just search for Gadoh.
(It will be in parts though, 10 minutes each, and the movie is 70 minutes long)

From the official website;
Gadoh is a 70-minute feature film that explores our perception of identity and challenges our hatred of the “other”.
This film is directed by Brenda Danker and Namron and produced by Big Pictures Production for KOMAS, a Malaysian human rights organisation.”
Gadoh tells a story of a group of teenagers who fought each other along racial lines; a cycle of hatred and violence further escalated by their environment and school system.
What was to be a quick resolution to improve the school’s bad image, was taken as an opportunity for one teacher who believed that real change was possible. She ropes in the help of an old friend and reluctant maverick theater activist for this arduous task.
Is there hope amidst the cycle of discrimination that surrounds us?
Watch Gadoh for their story, and what it may very well tell us about ourselves.



Its very touching and heart warming.
Another prove that we Malaysians can produce a good movie if given a chance.
(And provided if the government do not censor them, notice how all good movies are banned in Malaysia? So much of "freedom of speech")
