Journalist and documentary filmmaker, Zan Azlee, spends several weeks in Kutupalong, Bangladesh. It is the world’s largest refugee camp, housing close to a million displaced Rohingya. Through his gonzo style of filming, he catches a glimpse of life in the camp through the residents, assists a group of medical volunteers from Mercy Malaysia there, and even heads to the border and witnesses a group of several hundred Rohingya pleading for refuge who have just crossed the border from Myanmar.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with filmmaker Zan Azlee.
For the first time, an entrance fee of RM10 is charged for admission to the entire festival (5 – 7 October 2018), EXCEPT for workshops and special events, which are charged separately.
The Cooler Lumpur Festival has always been supported by grants, and as we approach our 6th year, a nominal contribution from our attendees will help greatly in keeping the festival sustainable and independent for years to come.
