Yasmin made movies to cheer parents up
The late Yasmin Ahmad made films to make her parents happy, her sister said.
â€œShe madeÂ RabunÂ to cheer our dad when he had acute diabetes in 2002.”Â
â€œLater, when mum had to undergo surgery to treat her enlarged heart, Yasmin madeÂ SepetÂ to make her happy,â€ saidÂ Datin Orked Ahmad, when accepting an award for the filmÂ MuallafÂ on behalf of her late sister at the 1Malaysia Cultural Award at the KL Convention Centre here yesterday.
It was the filmmaker’s last movie to be screened before she died from brain haemorrhage in 2009. She was 51.
A tearful Orked added: â€œOur parents were supposed to come today, but this morning mum broke down and couldn’t bring herself to attend the ceremony.â€
