Sharpened Word - August 2019

August in Ipoh is indeed an eventful month with plentiful of interesting activities on offer for both locals and visitors. In the spirit of Merdeka (independence), SW is now taking the opportunity to collaborate with PORT to offer a film screening and meet-the-director session at their premise.


As usual, we have lined up a list of distinguished guests for August. We have Dr. Razli Dalan, a UK-based specialist who is also an established movie director and despite his busy schedule, has promised to make a stop-over in Ipoh to discuss about his work and his aspirations.


Then we have the Penang-based Al Jafree Md Yusop, a name that needs no further introduction in the local movie scene. A multi-award winner and a fast-witted creative writer, Al Jafree is an advocate for the development of local film and the welfare of the industry players.
