9 September, 2015, Kuala Lumpur -- The 8th Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival (KLEFF) kicked off its satellite screening series in collaboration with MESYM tonight.
For four consecutive Tuesdays, KLEFF and MESYM will be hosting screenings of this year's films at Pusat Loyar Burok in Bangsar from 8 pm onwards.
"River of Exploding Durians" made its national premiere to tonight to a full house. It was very encouraging to see so many Malaysians present to watch the film.
The film tells the story of a rare earth plant is being built near a coastal town, where its inhabitants fall into despair, fearful of its radioactive effects. Ming, a high school student, is indifferent towards the changes. All he cares about is spending idyllic afternoons with the childhood friend he secretly loves, Mei Ann. Meanwhile. Ming's history teacher, Ms. Lim, has started an activist group to protest against the construction. She recruits her favourite student, Hui Ling, to join her. Their idealism is severely tested. As the construction goes on, they are all drawn into a chain of events that changes their lives irrevocably.
Director Edmond Yeo, along with his cast and crew were also present at the screening and gave a warm introduction to the audience about the film.
