Stay Home & Watch: POCA Boy

The FreedomFilmFest has been bringing socially relevant, human rights films to Malaysians since 2003. Now, as we stay home to stay safe, the folks behind the Freedom Film Network are releasing a specially curated FFF film playlist every Friday - dubbed ‘Weekend Watch with FreedomFilmFest' - on their YouTube channel, giving us plenty to watch, and lots of food for thought. This weekend's playlist is themed  #IPCMCNow - and is a collection of films that showcase why an Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission is necessary, to hold those who abuse their power accountable for their actions. One of the films featured is “POCA Boy”, a short documentary about Ang, a 16-year-old boy who was placed under POCA (Prevention of Crime Act 2015). We find out more from the film's director, Sevan Doraisamy, who is also the Executive Director of Suara Rakyat Malaysia (Suaram).
