Frontliners Celebrated With Premiere Of The Movie ‘Juang’

More than 200 frontline workers were celebrated through the premiere of the movie Juang in conjunction with the Malaysian Hero Appreciation Ceremony at Golden Screen Cinema (GSC), Ipoh Parade, last night.

All those present were front-line officers such as police, firefighters, RELA, medical teams and media practitioners.

The excitement of the event was enhanced by the presence of directors and actors such as Jack Lim, Matt Lai, Aziz M Osman, Sangeeta Krishnasamy, Sein Ruffedge and Fred Chong.

Among other things, the film highlights the dire situations and challenges, especially for frontliners, when COVID-19 first ‘attacked’ the world.

The message to be conveyed, among others, is the cooperation and success of the public in overcoming difficult moments such as the Movement Control Order (MCO).

According to the Mayor of Ipoh, Dato’ Rumaizi Baharin @ Md Daud, the ceremony was organised by Pincer MBI Studio Sdn. Bhd. in collaboration with the Ipoh City Council (MBI).

Pincer MBI Studio Sdn Bhd became one of the strategic partners who played a role in the investment and promotion of the film.

Rumaizi who is also the Chairman of Pincer MBI Studio Sdn. Bhd. said, the ceremony was specifically to give appreciation to those who worked hard during the special circumstances of 2020 up until now.

“As said by one of the directors of this film, Aziz M Osman, this film can be used as a reference for our children and grandchildren to see what happened to the country during this period.

“They can watch the movie Juang and can see the struggle of Malaysians to overcome the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The focus of this film actually has a lot to do with racial unity. When this pandemic happened, all Malaysians had to unite and sit together,” he added.

He hoped that the ceremony would be a platform to show Malaysians’ appreciation for the services of the frontliners during the pandemic and now endemic phase of COVID-19.

Previously, the media reported that the inspiration to produce the great work started from the perspective of five famous directors, Aziz M Osman, Datuk Yusry Abd. Halim, Matt Lai, Kabir Bhatia and Osman Ali as a tribute to the frontliners in Malaysia.
