As some of you may know by now, Yasmin Ahmad, acclaimed Malaysian director, has passed away after she suffered a stroke some days ago. She was admitted to a hospital and did not regain consciousness after that.
We've lost Michael, a legend in the entertainment world, and now we've lost another film legend, Yasmin Ahmad.
She directed the movies Rabun, Sepet, Gubra, Mukhsin, Muallaf, Talentime and most recently she was scheduled to work in Japan for a film. Her movies reflected the beauty of racial harmony and how important it is to have that in a country like Malaysia when we're so diversed in race, religion and culture.
Yasmin Ahmad (July 1, 1958 - July 25, 2009)
Rest in peace, Yasmin.
