Source & translation from ： Confucian Private Secondary School
(15 July) LLG Cultural Development Centre, Komas, Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia and Confucian Private Secondary School have jointly organized a ‘Gadoh’ screening at the hall of Confucian school. LLG Senior Executive Teh Yee Keong shared his view on the damage of racial discrimination, “This is a bomb in a multi-ethnic society” he said. After the screening, students actively expressed their views on the ethnic related issues.
Synopsis (From Komas)
Gadoh tells a story of a group of teenagers who fought each other along racial lines; a cycle of hatred and violence further escalated by their environment and school system.
What was to be a quick resolution to improve the school’s bad image, was taken as an opportunity for one teacher who believed that real change was possible. She ropes in the help of an old friend and reluctant maverick theater activist for this arduous task.
Is there hope amidst the cycle of discrimination that surrounds us?
Watch Gadoh for their story, and what it may very well tell us about ourselves.
