Fahmi Reza has made a fantastic short film about the hartal of 20 October 1947, with never before seen interviews and rare archival footages kept in Singapore. I had the opportunity to watch it when he brought over a rough cut some weeks ago.

“Sepuluh Tahun Sebelum Merdeka” (bilingual – English and BM) will premiere at The Annexe, Central Market on Friday, 14 September 2007. His slot starts from 8 pm at Block C.

Fahmi has also compiled a collection of his research and archival materials in this blog: 10tahun.blogspot.com.

Liz, I was just seven at that time and embed in my memory is some incident that show some demonstration of people and tense moment. We were discourage to go to school but I think I went to school on that day. The incident I remember happened at the present Jalan Wong Ah Jang in Kuantan, near the Abdullah School. Well memories of my childhood get clearer as I get older. Have a nice day.
