Liew Seng Tat | A Project in Development
'In What City' is still in script development stage. Currently we are looking for fundings and have already applied for a few grants.
This project is going to be interesting and challenging but it will not take place without a proper budget because of its costly happenings and arts. Until we secure some money to get started with, it remains just an idea, dead.
The very first idea of In What City Does It Live? is inspired by a real story of a Malay man who gathered men from his village to carry an abandoned wooden Malay house back to his house as a wedding gift for his daughter. This peculiar method of relocating a house is practiced in some Malay kampungs in Malaysia. Traditional Malay houses are built and raised on stilts. Some are not planted in the ground, thus making it possible of shifting from one place to another. This film deals with the cohesive spirit of the Malay community in a kampong and also touches on the superstitious belief of the Malays, who are in fact staunch Muslims.
