About the Event

*Violent themes - images of war victims

An activist, a journalist, and a performer excavate school textbooks, inherited memories, and video interviews of exiled revolutionaries – uncovering erasures, exclusions, and questions around the Malayan Emergency. They investigate and speculate on the possible histories for a ‘New Malaysia’, intersecting the personal, the national, and the notional. Directed by Mark Teh, this documentary performance takes back Malaysian history and gives it a new perspective.
