We're continuing our collaboration with the folks from the Freedom Film Network, revisiting past films that were made over the last two decades, which tackled various human rights issues in Malaysia. Today we dissect the issues raised in the 2018 film, Aku Mau Skola, which is a brief but very powerful look into the lives of stateless and marginalised children in Sabah, who have no documents and therefore no access to basic human rights, such as education and healthcare. We find out more about the true situation there, and the lived realities faced by stateless individuals, from Sandakan native and filmmaker, Putri Purnama Sugua.
