A most gifted person. A great loss to the world.

When I saw it in my friend's Facebook update...I refused to believe it.

I look up on The Star Online...then googled it...but it wasn't reported. Then I saw a link on my friend's GTalk: http://www.themalaysianinsider.com/index.php/malaysia/33339-yasmin-ahmad-dies ...the only one that reported her passing away...and part of me still refuse to believe it.

Farewell, Kak Min. May you rest in peace with Allah. And you and all your marvelous works, will not be forgotten...

The world suffered a great loss today.

**Edit: I just realised...Malaysians have yet to have the chance to watch Muallaf! Reasons being that our beloved censorship board had wanted some vital scenes to be removed from the movie, that would have rendered the story meaningless...they had even wanted Yasmin to change the name 'Muallaf'....to what I wonder... =.=

Muallaf has been screened and re-screened in Singapore. It's even recognized internationally, bagging a '
Special Mention Best Asian-Middle Eastern Film' at the Tokyo Internation Film Festival last year...Most (if not all) of Yasmin's film are applauded internationally and yet certain 'katak bawah tempurung' critics in our country (or maybe envious competitors)...have time and again condemned her and her works. It's such a shame that she is condemned by these individuals in her own country when the people in other countries think that they are masterpieces.

Following is the link to Yasmin's Muallaf Q&A Session at Picturehouse, Singapore. It's only of Part 1/4 of Session 1 of the Q&A but navigate yourself to all the other parts. It's cheerful to see her views of the film and etc...and it won't be a waste of your time.

    I didn't really felt her lost as I felt MJ's lost, but certainly was shocked and sad when I found out about it.

    Yeah, her loss is indeed is a huge blow to us in the film industry. May she rest in peace.
