Edmund Yeo / Falling for Angels: the Films of Yasmin Ahmad / Japan, Malaysia / 2017 / documentary / 70 minsIn 2016, Japanese director Isao Yukisada went to Malaysia to make a short film. YASMIN-SAN captures moments on the set and witnesses filmmakers from two cultures with a torturous colonial history coming together as collaborators, not unlike the surprising friendships in Yasmin Ahmad’s multicultural dramas. Less a documentary about Yasmin than a documentary about her enduring spirit, YASMIN-SAN honors her through films that, nearly a decade after her passing, continue to bear her name.
