ASEAN Classics

Thursdays and Sundays from August 6 8–10PM Cheah Temple Courtyard

30

Every Thursday and Sunday throughout the month of August, George Town Festival will host a free outdoor screening of ASEAN’s most beloved classic cinema. The films in the ASEAN CLASSICS series include The Philippines classic Genghis Khan (1950), first screened at the 1952 Venice Film Festival with positive reviews, and Malaysia’s famous Bawang Merah Bawang Puteh (1959), considered to be the country’s original “Cinderella Story”.

These cinema classics, each of which vividly paint a portrait of ASEAN’s diverse past, have become cultural icons, and are sure to appeal to both film enthusiasts and curious festivalgoers.
