If you are a 90s kid or even a 00s kid, chances are you’ve probably bawled your eyes out watching a Yasmin Ahmad film or even one of her iconic Petronas advertisements we eagerly wait for during festive seasons.

Needless to say, the whole country mourned when Yasmin Ahmad passed away on 25 July 2009 after suffering from a stroke. To honour her unique storytelling style, Netflix Malaysia announced today on their official Twitter account that they will be bringing back some of her iconic gems on 18 December 2020 to their global audience.

The movies that will be streaming are as follow:

 

1. Talentime

Talentime, 2009, was Ahmad’s last film starring Pamela Chong and Mahesh Jugal Kishor as Melur and Mahesh respectively, high school students participating in their high school talent show which forms an unexpected romance between them.

The film also stars Jacyln Victor, Adibah Noor, Harith Iskander and Ida Nerina in titular roles. Talentime won 11 awards at the 22nd Malaysia Film Festival including Best Screenplay and Best Director for Yasmin Ahmad.

 

2. Mukhsin

Mukhsin,2006, is the third instalment in the “Orked” trilogy serving as a prequel to Sepet (2004) and Gubra (2006) starring Mohd Shafie Naswip as Mukhsin and Sharifah Aryana as Orked.

The story revolves around the blossoming romance between 10-year-old Orked and 12-year-old Mukhsin and also the stories from the families in a village in Sekinchan, Sabak Bernam. Just within the first four days of its release, Mukhsin earned RM700,000 in box office takings and brought in a final gross of almost RM2 million.

 

3. Rabun

Rabun, 2002, was Yasmin Ahmad’s first full-length feature film which tells the story about a free-spirited older couple, Pak Atan (M.Rajoli) and Mak Inom (Kartina Aziz) who decide to spend more time in their village after getting tired of the city life.

The heartwarming film was inspired by Yasmin Ahmad’s father who turned partially blind.

Filmmakers may come and go but no one has left a mark in us as what Yasmin Ahmad did. Her films and advertisements truly portrayed the Malaysian spirit and togetherness in the purest form. Needless to say, we’re all going to be streaming on Netflix and renewing our subscriptions to take a walk down memory lane with the filmmaker who left us all too soon.
