This Malaysian Zombie Film is Bagging Best Horror Awards With Its Indigenous Actors and Setting1 min readReading Time: < 1 minute
As it snares awards around the world, a Malaysian independent zombie film is becoming the country’s most anticipated cinematic release of the year.
It’s easy to see why: as the world’s first zombie flick with indigenous Iban actors and setting, Belaban Hidup: Infeksi Zombie (Fight for Life: Zombie Infection ) is hard to forget.
The Iban, a former headhunting tribe known for their war antics and symbolic tattoos, are one three main native Dayak groups – a term that defines the longhouse-dwelling indigenous peoples of Borneo – from the island’s Malaysian state of Sarawak.
