1. NOTHING STOPPING MPs FROM RUNNING FOR STATE ELECTION
There is no obstacle for lawmakers to contest in the coming state election.
According to Asajaya assemblyman Datuk Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah, it is not wrong for them to contest if it is the people’s wish.
2. “BUNGAI NGEREMBAI” FIRST MODERN IBAN FILM IN HISTORY
The Iban people are not only good at singing, dancing, and poetry, but they are also great in acting.
Recently, a modern Iban film titled “Bungai Ngerembai” is now in the making with filming locations all around Kuching and studded with Iban actors.
Bungai Ngerembai director Dato Robin Lai said the main idea of the Iban film is to uplift the Iban people and Sarawakians as a whole to the world.
Robin added, a lot of people around the world have the wrong impression that the Iban people still live in trees, and so with this film, which is about to be released worldwide, it will hopefully show how advanced the Iban people are.
3. PLANS TO ESTABLISH ACTING ACADEMY FOR SARAWAKIANS
Meanwhile, Robin said the Sarawakian youth has plenty of acting talent but there are no platforms or ways for them to showcase and cultivate their talent.
The production of this film for example, has managed to sharpen the talent and skills of the actors in it.
Asked by the media, Robin expressed hope that more Iban films will be made after this, and not just this one off film.
