The Creative Process: The Making of Jagat

Date Sat, 9th Apr '16
Time 3pm
Venue Ilham Gallery

In between the torrent of cringe-worthy Malaysian films (i.e. Cicak Man, Pisau Cukur), are gems such as Mukhsin, Bunohan, and Jagat. The latter, criminally underseen, explores the trying times Malaysian Indians endured during the post-estate era. It received numerous praises for its storyline, historical context, direction, and acting — it garnered enough attention for it to be screened in cinemas for eight weeks, which was a feat considering the fact that its theatre run coincided with Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ as well. If you were one of the lucky ones who got to watch the film, come through for this talk on the creative process of the movie, of which director Shanjhey Kumar Perumal and producer Sivanantham Perianan will discuss the obstacles they faced during filming and the 10-year-long production time it took to make the film.
