Yesterday, we talked to Lara Ariffin (click here to read our fascinating interview with her!), who won the GZDoc’s Best Pitch Award for her wildlife documentary Wild Wild East. Now it’s time to talk another Malaysian who has also won the award – Chew Han Tah! If you’re familiar with the culinary legend, Martin Yan, you have Chew Han Tah to thank for the show based in Vietnam and Malaysia.
Documentaries do more than just give information. They tell stories that instill empathy and understanding upon things we’ve probably never even heard of before. When it comes to Malaysia, we have a myriad of wonderful filmmakers who are able to tell these stories, and one of them is Lina Teoh.
If you’ve spent your lifetime admiring the works of National Geographic, and hoped to someday work with the people behind these exquisite documentaries? If you’ve got more than passion and are looking to get your work on the big screen; we’ve sure got news for you!
