Yasmin Ahmad commemorated in Ipoh Museum
One of the greatest directors in Malaysia gets a posthumous exhibit of her works at Ipoh Museum.
Well known for her award-winning and thought-provoking works such as “Sepet”, “Gubra” and “Muallaf”, Yasmin Ahmad had a soft spot for Ipoh. Many of the late director’s films were shot there. Organising committee chairman David Lok thought it was only fitting then for the exhibition to be held in said state.
The exhibition will last for several months, Lok stated, before it will be added with fresh or revolving exhibits. Currently other than the photographs by renowned curator Stanley Wong of Hong Kong, films and advertisements made by Yasmin will also be screened alongside Wong’s exhibits.
Details of the exhibition are as follows:
Time: 10am – 6pm (weekends)
Address: 89-91, Old Block Apartments on Jalan Sultan Yussuf
Admission Fee: Free (Children under 12), minimum donation of RM3 for maintenance costs (Adults)
