The following is lifted from MalaysiaKini:

Taking its title rather appropriately from the rustic village of Bunohan, where it is set, maverick director Dain Said's latest offering is ready to set spines atingle. 

In this feature film, due to be released at the end of 2011, Dain explores the question of bloodlines through three estranged brothers—Adil the kickboxer, Ilham the hired assassin and Bakar the ambitious businessman, whose paths cross again in the rural Kelantan-Thai border. 


As their fates entangle, the film, which like Dain's previously unreleased film Dukun (based on convicted murderer and shaman Mona Fandey) deals with issues deep and unsettling.

In 2009, Singaporean filmmaker Sanif Olek began production on Singapore's first feature length Malay film in forty years, but production was halted due to insufficient funding. That film is Ramuan Rahsia, Sanif has already completed 65% of the film. Now he needs help to complete the remaining 35% and YOU can help!

You don't have to be rich or a multimillionaire to help either. You give what you can, as much as you can afford, with the lowest pledge at $10 Singapore Dollars.

We here at WAMM think that the idea of crowd-sourced funding is an excellent one and so we 're letting you know about!

Actually the idea of public appeal isn't new. Local short Hujan Panas, which we'll be screening at the WAMM/FUSED Screening #6 this coming Wednesday (Mar 23rd) was also funded through crowd-sourcing via Kickstarter.com.

Here's a trailer from the available footage of Ramuan Rahsia to quip your interest... and yes, that is our very own Rahim Razali!

Check out their FB fund appeal page and their website to find out more about how YOU can be apart of this film-making experience.

I remember reading about this quite a while back. But then it got buried under the million other things life threw at me. And suddenly, I follow up on it and found this.

Love the trailer. Great actors. Looks like it'll be awesome.

Check it out on FACEBOOK and keep tabs on the Director, Nadiah Hamzah of Wayangworks. (@wayangworks on Twitter.) WAMM most definitely will.

Writer, Director, Actor Kevin Smith also popularly known as 'Silent Bob', an established player in Hollywood in his own right is distributing his own flick. Taking a stand against the idea that the marketing of a film is sometimes more than double the actual production costs of the film and saying that there's more than one way to get your film into the cinema.

This isn't exactly fully Malaysian Made, but a Malaysian is heavily involved and it's quite an interesting looking piece.

It's about the alternative comedy scene in South East London and one of the clubs that made British live comedy what it is. A little piece of unsung comedy history.

Check out the following lifted from a FB Group Page, written by John Lim:

I don't know how many of you know but Jody, Dom and I have recently made a documentary - The Tunnel - for Film London.

It's just been short-listed for Film London's 'Best of Borough' Awards. The jury will vote on the main award, but there is also an Audience Award chosen by viewers who vote for their favourite film on Film London's website. SO WE NEED YOU TO VOTE FOR IT NOW (if you like it of course).
 
 
The following are excerpts from a FB message sent by Writer / Producer Edmund Yeo:

SYNOPSIS:
Ping Ping is 19 and wants to go to Japan to work in a car parts company. She's under the guardian of her aunt, Madame Tien, who shuffles her between two jobs; working in a pig farm, and cleaning dishes in a rundown restaurant. Tien is also involved in a baby factory scheme, pairing young women with migrant workers and then selling the babies for money. Both survive with each other in a love-hate symbiotic manner, until a truth about her aunt is revealed to Ping Ping.
