Stay Home & Watch: Saving Malaysia

For the last few months, the team behind the FreedomFilmFest have been releasing a specially curated Freedom film playlist every weekend - dubbed ‘Weekend Watch with FreedomFilmFest' - on their YouTube channel. This week, the film set to be re-released is the 2017 documentary film "Saving Malaysia". The film looked at the Pakatan Harapan coalition that emerged prior to GE14 to ‘Save Malaysia’ and which saw old political enemies become allies, with the collective aim of toppling the Barisan National led government of the time. We find out more about what the film explored from its director, Sheridan Mahavera, who is also a former journalist and who currently manages the Freedom Film Network’s programme to reform film censorship.
