Return to Nostalgia

Local filmmaker Woo Ming Jin and his crew traversed across Peninsular Malaysia and Singapore to find ‘Seruan Merdeka’ (1947) – the first film made in Malaya post-WWII, and also the first film in the history of Malaysian cinema to feature a biracial cast of Malays and Chinese. While tracking the film’s whereabouts, Woo met many locals along the way, whom he interviewed in an effort to find out more about the country’s history. These abandoned memories and unspoken histories will finally come to light in ‘Return to Nostalgia’.
