"Asian Three-Fold Mirror 2016: Reflections" made its way to Malaysia earlier this month with a Malaysian premiere at GSC Mid Valley on 21 April, 2017. There was a Special Screening open to public follows on 22 April. This event was organized by Japan Foundation Asia Center & Japan Foundation Kuala Lumpur.
What's Asian Three-Fold Mirror project ?
This Asian Three-Fold Mirror project brings together three globally acclaimed directors from Asia to co-create omnibus films with a common theme.The directors portray people living in Asia from their own viewpoints and project the society and culture of their own countries, like a three-fold mirror. These films have been produced with an aim to deepen mutual knowledge, understanding and empathy, and to provide opportunities to explore the Asian identity and ways of living. The project framework requires the directors to include a character who is connected in some manner to another Asian country, and to shoot on location in an Asian country. The rest is left to each director's unique style.The omnibus series will have its world premiere at the Tokyo International Film Festival, followed by presentations at other major film festivals around the world.

It was a fun two-days event that I got to cover and photograph the event at the same time. During the Malaysian Premiere of "Asian Three-Fold Mirror 2016: Reflections", Director Isao Yukisada attended the screening to present "Pigeon", his piece of the multi-part anthology along with main actress Sharifah Amani as well as co-producers Woo Ming Jin and Edmund Yeo.
Right after the movie, Edmund Yeo presented us "Yasmin san", a behind-the-scenes documentary of "Pigeon" , which I enjoyed watching.

There are total three stories in "Asian Three-fold Mirror 2016 : Reflections", "SHINIUMA Dead Horse" , "Pigeon", "Beyond The Bridge". Three stories representing Philippines, Malaysia and Thailand.
I find "Pigeon" the easiest to watch and entertaining at the same time. Love the simplicity in the story and the way they portray the relationship between an old man and his new care-taker. If there's a chance that they showing it online, do feel free to watch it =)
Now I shall share some happy moments that I manage to capture during the two days event. Hope you guys like it!!
