Popcorn Culture - Review: Pendatang

Long before its release, Pendatang was making headlines, and for good reason too: it's billed as Malaysia's first fully crowdfunded movie (in part, so that it would also be free for all to watch), it's premiering on Youtube (in part, for wide distribution but also to sidestep issues of censorship), and it has an intriguing premise. It's a dystopian thriller, based in a version of Malaysia where different races are not permitted to mix, but a Chinese family discovering a young Malay girl in their house has to make a tough decision. Directed by Ng Ken Jin and written by Lim Boon Siang, it's been getting plenty of buzz - we get into the film itself, and whether it lives up to the hype.
