The film is about 24 minutes long. For some reason the film on YouTube opens at 1:55 mark. Just scroll back to the beginning. It starts out with the call to prayer and some scenery shots of rural Malaysia. This is in English, though in the opening scenes some Malay is being spoken.
Last December I had blogged about Associate Professor Frederick Lewis and his team of students from Ohio University coming to Malaysia for the filming.
Enjoy the film, a nice introduction to Malaysia, and share it with friends. Here is also the link to The Story Behind the Story.
