Chacko Vadaketh narrates this beautifully made and fascinating documentary with footage never seen before is being screened in London! 😊 It's kindly sponsored by CIMB open to all and is free. But you need to RSVP here. An Interesting focus is on Onn bin Jaafar who should have been our guest PM but fir the fact that he committed political suicide by wanting UMNO to be a multi racial party and not a Malay only party. Do catch it if at a loss for something to do on Sat 3 Dec afternoon it's in two parts, a hour long each part, with a discussion after, which you could sneak out of. 😊
More infos: CIMB London in collaboration with ASTRO are bringing to you the screening of 'Road to Nationhood', a highly-acclaimed two-part historical documentary-film that traces Malaya’s journey towards independence and eventually the founding of Malaysia. Inspired by the rich historical contents and stories derived from a book of the same title by the New Straits Times Press Group Publications; this masterpiece features never-seen-before archive and footage from sources otherwise mostly forgotten, relived through advanced and cutting-edge visual effects (VFX). This documentary brings to life untold stories of the founding fathers - such as Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra, Tun Tan Cheng Lock, Tun V.T. Sambanthan and Mr. Lee Kuan Yew - as told by close associates, family and friends. It also features personal and political perspectives of the struggles, including the bitter oppositions to Malaysia's formation. The documentary also brings forward voices of monumental figures like Tunku Khadijah Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad, Tengku Tan Sri Razeleigh Hamzah, Tan Siok Choo, Zainah Anwar and many more.
Come and immerse yourself in this critical yet constructive inquiry into our nation's journey! RSVP is required for logistical purposes (also for health ad safety).
