Stay Home & Watch: The Hills and The Sea & Doa Seorang Nelayan

We're continuing our coverage on past films that were released under the FreedomFilmFest, which has been bringing socially relevant, human rights-themed films to Malaysians since 2003. As we stay home to stay safe, the folks behind the Freedom Film Network are releasing a specially curated Freedom film playlists - dubbed ‘Weekend Watch with FreedomFilmFest' - on their YouTube channel, for a look-back at the many thought-provoking films that have been released throughout the years. Earlier this month, they released a playlist on the topic of the environment, and two of the featured documentaries were The Hills and The Sea' (2017) and Doa Seorang Nelayan (2019), which were both made by filmmaker Andrew Han, and which tackled the topic of development projects in Penang, and how those plans directly impact local communities and the environment. Andrew joins us to share more, alongside Jo Leen Yap, a Wildlife Researcher with the Langur Project Penang, who was also featured in The Hills and The Sea.
