Must Watch Indie Movie: Gadoh

I am not sure whether this movie is indeed banned in Malaysia or forced to be screened privately, because of its provocative thoughts. For the sake of a better future for Malaysia, this movie should be screened publicly so that people will realized skin color, religion, culture does not make a human being different from each other.So that we are truly 1 Malaysia instead of just  it being a catch phrase.

Sadly, i think that only the younger generation is able to change to a better future, the older generation just stuck in the rigid and fearful mindset grown from years of too long in the system.

Kudos to the makers of these movies..We need more of these movies to wake people up.

Hint: Just google for gadoh and vimeo to find the full length movie for free. There are some preview in youtube too.

If you cannot change the world, then change yourself first!!!

Gadoh tells a story of a group of teenagers who fought each other along racial lines; a cycle of hatred and violence further escalated by their environment and school system.

What was to be a quick resolution to improve the school’s bad image, was taken as an opportunity for one teacher who believed that real change was possible. She ropes in the help of an old friend and reluctant maverick theater activist for this arduous task.

Is there hope amidst the cycle of discrimination that surrounds us?

Watch Gadoh for their story, and what it may very well tell us about ourselves.
