August is for Malaysian Stories

August is a time of reflection for Malaysians ... I won't say I'm a patriotic zealot but I do love my country and I'm immensely proud of the creativity of Malaysians artists. P1 and 15Malaysia brings us 15 short films to celebrate the beauty of our diversity ... here are a series of short videos created to show us who we really are, so stay tuned ....

Excerpt from 15Malaysia's site:

"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."

These videos will be released one by one between 17 August till 16 September. So far, two videos can be viewed; Chocolate by Yasmin Ahmad and Potong Saga by Ho Yuhang. Get the latest buzz on their Facebook site or follow their tweets.

You may watch and even download the videos, go to: P1 or 15Malaysia

What to expect? Well, some are funny, some are sad, ironic and even a little bit silly; they may make you laugh or cry or invoke all kinds of emotions ... and some may even make you go "huh?"

Have fun everyone and enjoy being Malaysian!
