After taking a break from serious filmmaking, I’m back! And this time, it’s an issue that I’ve always felt very passionate about. I spent some time in Kutupalong, the world’s biggest refugee camp, which houses close to a million displaced Rohingya. It will be premiering at ‘The Refugee Fest: Inclusion for a better world‘ this week. Please come by and watch the film. There will be a Q&A session right after the screening as well if you’ve got burning questions that you want to ask me!
Anyway, here are the details:
We Are Animals (2018, 50 minutes)
Synopsis: Journalist and documentary filmmaker, Zan Azlee, spends several weeks in Kutupalong, Bangladesh. It is the world’s largest refugee camp, housing close to a million displaced Rohingya. He catches a glimpse of life in the camp through the residents, assists a group of medical volunteers from Mercy Malaysia there, and even heads to the border and witnesses a group of several hundred Rohingya pleading for refuge who have just crossed the border from Myanmar.
Date and Time: 28th June 2018 (Thursday), 4:30pm

*a little error in the article though… I am still very much a journalist, and not a ‘former’ journalist.
Interested in making your own films? Then why not get Zan Azlee’s book ‘Guide to indie filmmaking‘ today?
