Anak Ibu, Anak Malaysia  (2022)

This is a short film about one mother’s years-long struggle to pass on her Malaysian citizenship to her daughter. Her struggle brings her from the courts, through Malaysia’s bureaucracy, to her hometown in Sungkai. The film will shed light on how Malaysia’s gender-discriminatory citizenship laws denies thousands of children the right to be truly Malaysian, and the heavy toll it takes on families.
