Thoughts on Films

Thinking aloud on films in Malaysia and beyond.

Episode 54: Let’s Talk About Ninavau

February 18th, 2020

This week, Fikri and Muz are back to discuss the film ‘Ninavau’ by Bebbra Mailin. The film enjoyed a banner year in 2019, winning numerous awards and selections for festivals in Malaysia and beyond.
