Liew Seng Tat’s highly anticipated film which has been selected for multiple international film festivals, Lelaki Harapan Dunia, is set to release on 27 November 2014 in Malaysian cinemas nationwide.
One of the key highlights of the night was when the director and cast of Lelaki Harapan Dunia rally together to carry a miniature replica of the house featured in the film in a true “gotong-royong” style. It was a wonderful sight to behold.
Lelaki Harapan Dunia follows a series of wild mishaps that befalls a quaint Malay village which lead to misunderstanding, false accusations and hilarious situations. The film has a stellar line up of Malaysian actors led by Wan Hanafi Su. It stars Harun Salim Bachik, Soffi Jikan, Jalil Hamid and Azhan Rani among others. It is produced by Sharon Gan and is a co-production project between Everything Films Sdn. Bhd.
