Requiscat in pace, Yasmin Ahmad. It is truly a great loss for a country like Malaysia because she has attempted things never before attempted by any of her peers, nor her predecessors, nor her contemporaries.

She dies, but her legacy in Sepet, Gubra and many more shall continue to live on, striking us Malaysians constantly to adopt an open and welcoming mind just like what Yasmin Ahmad had been fighting for all this while.

Dear Yasmin, you will be sorely missed.

"One of the best directors in Malaysia" ??

Are you guys mad?

Put simply, the best director in Malaysia, period. Can you think of any other directors that have won international award?

Well, anyone?

Will mourn her unexpected death till the eternity.

A true film maker who has been going against the 'Inconvenient Truth' by portraying it in her movies. A sincere and humble lady who sees her responsibility to help the country to be united.

In years to come, should we achieve true 'unity in diversity', we shall not forget her, who has been so persistent in bringing all of us together.

It's such a sad thing for a person with such great talent to die young...
Yasmin Ahmad will be sorely missed. But her legacy shall live on...

(No more Petronas advertisements from her! )

Not very relevant to this thread, but I know of at least one: Tsai Ming-Liang is a famous director amongst Chinese community, and he has won many international film awards. He has lived in Taiwan longer than he lived in Malaysia though. So technically he might not be considered a "Malaysian" director.

It was a huge shock when I came back from college during which i did not have access to newspapers and right there it said it....

To Yasmin, who drew us closer with a few-minutes commercial than any hour-long speeches by politicians

His films are...too artistic for me...I remember my friend telling me that in one of his films, theres a 5 minutes scene shooting a man walking to a bench on the beach...a long still video shot. After that, theres another 5 minutes of him sitting on the bench, overlooking the sea.

I was busy for the past few weeks studying french, but the news of her death schocked me when i read it 2 days ago. She was a very good director and will be missing her multiracial movies.
