TRIBUTE TO MOTHER MANGALAM – MALAYSIAN SCREENPLAY
Our children are given less respect than they deserve. It is the same with our women. The acknowledgment is both the credit and the honour of which our worthy have been denied.
A pity, for the child sees truths that the world rarely shows and a woman is able to interpret them.
Such is the sentiment in Tribute to Mother Mangalam, a short Malaysian screenplay, following the life of Mangalam. Mangalam is a girl who’s practically introspective, a young woman who embraces the hardships of what she sees, hears and feels and a mature and wizened senior, who imparts and still welcomes the relentless wisdom that comes with age; for the lessons are plenty and children will listen.
And in silence the inner child speaks, and in silence the outer child is heard.
