Why is 2018 Malaysian General Elections regarded as history-making? Directors Dian Lee and Ineza Roussille answer this question with documentary M for Malaysia. Join us as we screen and discuss this production.

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.

The Friday evening screening will be followed by a Q&A Session with the film’s directors Dian Lee and Ineza Roussille.
