Stay Home & Watch: Films about People’s Movement for Change

Since early June, 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. Each thematic playlist has allowed us to revisit some of the many films produced for the film festival, and remind ourselves about the many human rights issues that have been brought to the fore, through these thought-provoking films. This weekend, the playlist is themed 'People’s Movement for Change' and will feature three films: "Melawan Arus" by Arul Prakkash, "Kayuh" by Soh Sook Hwa and "When Lawyers Walk", by Mien Ly. On the show today, we speak to both Prakkash and Sook Hwa about their respective films.
