I was away when the news of Yasmin Ahmad's death shook Malaysia. I felt genuine dismay when I finally heard about it a few days later. I admit I don't know her personally but I deeply admire that she stuck to her guns despite all the controversy Sepet stirred up for bringing down cross cultural barriers. She was not only talented & inspirational but one who was very genuine & brave, who IMHO revolutionised Malaysian cinema (and I know I'm not alone in this sentiment). Here's her simple yet endearing entry to 15Malaysia where you can also watch 14 other short films about Malaysia featuring some of the best known faces in the country including entertainers and politicians. For now, enjoy Chocolate which was just released yesterday.
