Kurang Manis

Sugar, Less

KURANG MANIS (SUGAR, LESS) is a 60-minute documentary (currently in production) that explores the lives of six ordinary Malaysians who bare all about their hopes and dreams about the New Malaysia and what it means to be among one in two Malaysians who are obese. Through film, we introduce the most obese population in Southeast Asia to the world and expose why Malaysians are obsessed with their food, why they do what they do and New New* Malaysia!

The Kurang Manis script awarded a 2nd Prize at the Motion Picture Association International Script to Screen Workshop Malaysia 2019 co-organised by MPA-Apac, Finas and Wildsnapper TV. Read about it here on page 19.

*The script was referring to a new Malaysia after the 9th May 2018 elections (GE14). It’s now 2021 and the leadership of Malaysia has since changed hands three times.
