Awang Semaun hits theaters


It’s never easy making a movie itself. Money and budget will always be a factor and it’s never to get the most out of the resources especially in Brunei Darussalam. The local shows that I have caught in the local cinemas were Apa Ada Dengan Rina (2013) and Yasmine (2014), both winning accolades regionally and internationally respectively. Another thing is that both movies scored 7.6 on IMDB. Interesting fact!!

So this is the third local movie I will be catching in our local cinemas – Awang Semaun: Rise of the Warrior. There has been a lot of buzz on their social media accounts so I believe this is enough to garner interested from the public to support the locally made movie. I’m not sure how much was spent on the movie.

The movie was directed by Azmi Matassan of Supasta Production and it’s amazing that the entire cast and the crew were volunteers. Sometimes this can be a good thing but can be unfavorable as well but just as long as their intentions are the same, there won’t be much challenges. I applaud the leadership of the producer to make this movie into a reality with the available limited resources.

The intention of the movie is simple – to remind the public that Brunei had its own legendary warriors in the past. Remember the first Sultan of Brunei? Awang Alak Betatar. In history, Awang Semaun himself was the younger brother of Awang Alak Betatar and he became the protector for the Sultan and his people from pirates and colonizers.

According to Azmi in the interview with The Brunei Times, the historically inspired movie is an experimental movie since it’s supported through volunteerism.

I shall be catching this movie tonight and I congratulate the team behind Awang Semaun: Rise of the Warrior. By the way, the movie is spoken in Malay language without any subtitles.
