Stream time: road movie script revisited to talking about trains in Japan


Date and time: July 25, 9.45pm

Nik Amir Mustapha’s gorgeously-shot Terbaik Dari Langit is a gift that keeps on giving. What's not to like about a road movie about the quest to make an experimental sci-fi film? If you remember it was released on Christmas day in 2014, and this Sunday, the tight-knit cast (of film and theatre friends) from the movie will return for a special script reading session, with proceeds to help a community donation drive. Bront Palarae, Iedil Putra, Amerul Affendi, Nadiya Nisaa, Megat Shahrizal and more will be a part of this virtual reunion.

Date and Time: Until July 31
