HeLLoo Mello Peeepooos,
Recommendation of Short Film, again, and it is getting better!
Seliseh by Ismail Kamarul from Reservoir Production
Fun Fact : Seliseh simply means friction, disagreement. (Selisih in Malaysian language).
I first came to know about Reservoir Production after watching Guang by the inspiring young Malaysian Director, Quek Shio Chuan. They had plenty of inspiring short and commercials and you might have watched one of them too. Great job guys!
Seliseh is about two young Malaysians who lived back in the 1940s, decades before our independence day and where communities were split into race and culture. The racial tension was tense back then. However, these two young Chinese and Malay girl, learned to help each other when they both in trouble despite the language barrier. The way that the director convey his ideas and messages to the audience is simply amazing. Understanding and respect, two of the most simple moral value that we adult tend to forget. We should learn to understand and respect each other despite all of our differences. This is why I prefer short film produced by independent filmmaker rather than big screen movie because most of them are a reflection of our daily life, our culture and our story. We easily get connected. (P/S: I still love em big screen movie too yo!)
I really enjoyed this short film, especially with their cinematography works. I really hope Ismail Kamarul has something big coming up soon, a full length featured film maybe?
Please subscribe to their channel and share this video around. Links below! Check them out! They did tremendous work out there just to make this film for us and with no monetary gain intention. Just a pure, original and inspiring message to all dear Malaysians! Happy Birthday, Malaysia!
