A Tribute To Yasmin Ahmad

Internationally-acclaimed movie director Yasmin Ahmad, also renowned for her advertisements capturing the essence of family and multiracial unity of Malaysia, suffered a stroke while attending a meeting at Sri Pentas on Thursday and undergone surgery following her collapse. She passed away from massive bleeding in the brain at the Damansara Specialist Hospital at 11.25pm yesterday. This is a tribute to one of the greatest directors Malaysia had ever seen, whose movies and ads are celebrated by and touches all races in Malaysia, and those around the world.

From all her award-winning movies, one of the most remembered would be Sepet.


Not forgetting Talentime, her latest movie released this year.


Yasmin will also never be forgotten for her ads, that are incredibly meaningful and never fail to tug at your heartstrings.

I absolutely love this one about a funeral. How your imperfections make you perfect. I'm moved to tears every time I watch this...


About family...


Her CNY ads...



And not forgetting the endearing Tan Hong Ming =)


Yasmin Ahmad, you will be dearly missed and remembered. Rest in peace.
