Gubra and Sepet are 2 of the great modern time Malay movies that I've ever watched. They were directed by Yasmin Ahmad, self styled storyteller. I was surprised, saddened in fact to hear of her sudden illness and passing last night.
I chanced upon Yasmin Ahmad's blog, and saw this short ad which she produced under commission by the Singapore government. I love this ad, brought tears to my eyes. I watched it during the time I spent recovering, to the point I imagined my dear wife talking about me and my... well, 'car trouble starting' and 'strong rear wind'. I sensed something about that ad, but couldn't put a finger to it... until tonight. It was her magic touch.
My sincere condolence to her family. May Allah bless her soul. Amin.
