Stay Home & Watch: Rights of the Dead
Tricia Yeoh, CEO, Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (IDEAS) and Film Director of Rights of the Dead
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 under this playlist is the documentary film "Rights of the Dead" which looks at the events surrounding the mysterious death of political aide Teoh Beng Hock, and what transpired after. We find out more from the film's director, Tricia Yeoh, who is the CEO of the Institute for Democracy and Economic Affairs (IDEAS).
