Ever wondered how the lives of UTK (Unit Tindakhas) agents are especially during one of their discreet yet vital missions?
INNOCENT romance between schoolgirl and drug pusher amidst a backdrop of lust and intoxication — that’s how we’d describe Pekak. It’s gritty but pretty, thrilling but heartwarming; our review of the film was the first in a string of praise for its bold themes, vivid imagery and technical competence. It’ll interest you that the film has been banned in Brunei because it allegedly does not contain moral values and was deemed a negative influence!
FOLLOWING its successful presentation at one of the biggest film markets in the world, the Marché du Film, Pekak recently snagged two big awards at the International Motivational Film Festival (IMFF) Bridge of Arts in Russia.
IN a year which has seen strong releases such as Ola Bola, Jagat and even BoBoiBoy The Movie, it would seem greedy to expect Malaysian cinema to net more winning films. Yet the blessing continues as PhuturePhlow‘s Kroll Azry (a.k.a. Mohd Khairul Azri) delivers in spades with his directorial debut, Pekak.
