Have you ever wondered what happens after death?

These are the musings of 15-year-old Aishah, the protagonist of theatre outfit Anomalist Production’s first feature length film called Mentega Terbang. Shot during the pandemic in July last year (when lockdown restrictions were eased), the film grapples with hard-hitting themes such as death, religion, the afterlife... all explored through the lens of a young girl.
