“Inherent Tribe Tatana” by Chester Pang
Sabahan producer Chester Pang puts the limelight on Dusun Tatana people in his 60-minute documentary film titled “Inherent Tribe Tatana”.
Just like other 30 ethnics in Sabah, he said the ethnic from Kuala Penyu deserves a storytelling opportunity to tell the world of its uniqueness.
“As people know the Baba Nyonya in Melaka, Dusun Tatana in Sabah also has the similar backgrounds,” he said after a technical preview of the film at a cinema here on May 11.
According to the documentary, due to the proximity of Kudat and Kuala Penyu to China, it is possible that the Chinese migrated to both places during the 19th and 20th century which led to the intermarriage with Dusun Tatana people.
To date, there are about 3,000 descendants of the Dusun Tatana, although embracing either Christianity, Islam or Buddhism, but they are still practicing Chinese traditions such as celebrating Chinese New Year.
Despite having fewer “shaman” and “messenger” now, the Tatana people is still conducting rituals meant for blessings, peace and harmony among others.
The annual organisation of Odou Bakanjar festival, which falls a day after Chap Goh Mei, is said to make the people including younger generation to feel proud of their heritage.
Pang said the RM280,000 film, which is partially funded by FINAS, will take part in the international film festivals this year.
It will be screened for public viewing next year either via local television programmes, online platforms and also Netflix.Sabah Creative Economy and Innovation Centre (SCENIC) general manager Viviantie Sarjuni said the centre under the initiative of Sabah government would support creative talents.
“We do not only provide training and workshops but also help to commercialise talents into the international level, outside Sabah.
“For Chester, we will also support in terms of their participation fees to join festivals, their flights and accommodation to ensure their journey is smooth-sailing.”

Wu Tang Clan & The RZA: 10 Kung-Fu Movies That Inspired Their Hip-HopBy Cody McIntosh Published Jan 16, 2020
10/10 The 36th Chamber of Shaolin
UP FROM THE 36 CHAMBERS... IT'S THE GHOSTFACE KILLA. Both the namesake of their debut album, which is not only their most critically acclaimed record, but also definitely the fan-favorite, shortly followed by Wu-Tang Forever and Liquid Swords. It's, of course, a film done by the Shaw Brothers as with many on this list to be sure. It tells the story of a fictionalized story of San Te, a mythical master of Shaolin martial arts. It also received a more light-hearted sequel, called Return To The Thirty-Six Chambers. If you haven't seen this one, whether you're a Wu-Tang fan or a fan of Kung-Fu movies, this one is an absolute must-watch considering some people think that it very well may be the best Kung-Fu movie of all time.
9/10 Shaolin And Wu-Tang
The film Shaolin And Wu-Tang is another really important film to Wu-Tang's history. Anyone who's heard 36 Chambers will recognize this movie considering it's been sampled on "Bring Da Ruckus", "Da Mystery of Chessboxin'", "Wu-Tang: 7th Chamber", "Clan in Da Front", "Conclusion", and "Method Man (Remix). This film also starred the star of the previous film on the list, Gordon Liu. While it's arguably more important than the previous entry since this film is where Wu-Tang took their name from, the previous entry is generally considered the better of the two.
8/10 Executioners From Shaolin
Executioners From Shaolin is another Shaw Brothers film from 1977. It follows the story of Hung Hsi Kuan, and a generational struggle that the Shaolin are involved in to take out the followers of Pai Mei, and the lineage that will eventually become the martial arts style known as Pai Mei Kung-Fu.
You might recognize this film as the source of the sample on 36 Chambers that really lets you know "Okay, I'm in for a hype album" when you finally hear that "Tiger Style" sample hit on "Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nuthing To F' With". This song and this sample let you know that indeed, Wu-Tang should be held at a high regard.
7/10 Five Deadly Venoms
Five Deadly Venoms is another Shaw Brothers production about five fighters (the titular 5 deadly venoms) that all fight using unique animal-based Kung-Fu styles, such as centipede, snake, scorpion, lizard, and toad. Each one of these styles have specific attributes that are directly related to the animals they're named after, like the scorpion style character using a kick that is said to be able to paralyze its victims. Since 7 of Wu-Tang's members had served prison time, the RZA decided that the sample from the movie would represent that people were afraid of them, so he plopped it into the beat for the song "Intro (Shaolin Finger Jab/Chamber Music)
6/10 The Mystery Of Chessboxing
The name of the song "Da Mystery Of Chessboxin'" from 36 Chambers is a direct reference to the film The Mystery Of Chessboxing from 1979 which has the international title of Ninja Checkmate. The film features a villain known as the Ghostface Killer which is extremely reminiscent of oh wait... Ghostface Killah, duh.
The villain in the film is known for his distinctive 5-elements style and most of the film features our protagonist trying to get an old master to teach him the art of chessboxing, a rather strange sport that features the alternations of rounds of chess with rounds of boxing. A pretty uncreative name for such an odd sport, but it gets the job done.
5/10 Shaolin Vs. Lama
Samples from the film Shaolin Vs. Lama appear mostly on tracks from GZA and Raekwon which at first doesn't seem that important to Wu-Tang as a whole, but GZA and Raekwon are two of the most critically acclaimed members of Wu-Tang, releasing the hit albums Liquid Swords and Only Built 4 Cuban Linx respectively. The influence they've had on hip-hop as a genre really can't be overstated. The film tells of a battle between a young Shaolin apprentice who has to learn a new move to defeat the head of a rival gang, who also happens to be a Tibetan Buddhist Lama.
4/10 The Eight Diagram Pole Fighter
The Eight Diagram Pole Fighter is yet another entry produced by the Shaw Brothers on our list, and it stars Gordon Liu yet again, as well as Alexander Fu in his very last film appearance.
The film was released in 1984 and made in Hong Kong. The film is based on some of the ancient legends of the Song dynasty, specifically a text called Generals Of The Yang Family. The RZA said that if he had to pick just one Kung-Fu film that was most important to the formation of the Wu-Tang clan, it'd be this one.
3/10 Ten Tigers From Kwangtung
Ten Tigers From Kwangtung is a film that came out in 1979, and was directed by Chang Cheh. It tells the story of rivalries held between the Shaolin and Qing dynasty. It features a ridiculous roster of incredibly good martial artists that you can usually find appearing in a Shaw Brothers film. It's also the classic "Tiger Style" sample in "Wu-Tang Clan Ain't Nuthing Ta F' With".
2/10 The Four Assassins （馬可波羅)
This film cast a western actor in an attempt to garner a larger audience. Another Shaw Brothers powerhouse, The Four Assassins tells the story of historical explorer Marco Polo's time in China (rather inaccurately) as he tries to thwart the 4 assassins that are coming for the Mongolian emperor's life. This film came out in 1975, and the name of the film serves as the title track for a Wu-Tang song.
1/10 Invincible Armor
Invincible Armor is a film that The RZA chose to sample explicitly because it's fairly obscure, deciding that by sampling it, hopefully he'd open a bigger audience up to watching one of his favorite Kung-Fu movies. The Invincible Armor is a 1977 film that tells the story of a man's struggle for his honor after he's falsely accused of a crime by a corrupt official.

Iron Fists and Kung Fu Kicks–Netflix film tracks the pop culture reach of Hong Kong kung fu movies
Review by C.J. Bunce
From Hong Kong to the U.S. and Australia to Uganda, Australian director Serge Ou and writer Grady Hendrix track the scope of the Hong Kong kung fu movie industry and its pop culture influence on the world in the documentary Iron Fists and Kung Fu Kicks, now streaming this month on Netflix. Splicing interviews with kung fu legends of the past with new discussions with martial artists and actors influenced by them, Ou offers up a surprisingly rich look at how and why kung fu movies gained an international following that continues to this day via Jackie Chan comedies, the Matrix movies (with a sequel due in theaters next year), and new television series like Wu Assassins and Iron Fist.
Beneath what is in essence an overview of the genre is a smart mixture of social and cultural commentary on a global phenomenon centered on an artform mixing athleticism, dance, and grace. Kung fu made its way to American audiences with Tom Laughlin in Billy Jack, and into millions of homes via the Kung Fu series. This was paralleled by Bruce Lee movies and lesser films (they call them Bruce-sploitation) from China and U.S. studios, direct-to-video crotch-kicking and “squirrel-grabbing” action on VHS tapes in video stores, heroines leading the way as a sub-genre, eventually moving to black and inner city audiences embracing the culture, starting with martial artist and actor Jim Kelly (who co-starred with Bruce Lee in Enter the Dragon), re-emerging later as an influence on hip hop music. The genre got even bigger boosts with Jackie Chan heavy-stunt comedies, followed by The Matrix and the Academy Awards arrival of the genre with Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. Chinese co-productions with other nations, and actors of Chinese background in the mainstream outside of Asia would eventually come along.
Viewers meet (or revisit) early kung fu icons Cheng Pei-Pei and Sammo Hung in new interviews, along with Billy Banks, who would turn the genre into his own fortune via the creation of the Tae Bo workout, early American female kung fu star Cynthia Rothrock, martial artist Richard Norton, plus from the 21st century shows, Iron Fist actor Jessica Henwick, Wu Assassins actor JuJu Chan, Doctor Strange actor Scott Adkins, and Marvel stuntwoman and choreographer Amy Johnston, among others. It’s all interspersed with great action sequences and other clips from more than 100 films. A theme underscoring much of kung fu movie history is a distinct lack of safety standards, with more than one participant in the documentary stressing that Hong Kong kung fu movies couldn’t be made anywhere else for that reason.
A key focus is not surprisingly Bruce Lee, taking America by storm as Kato in the Green Hornet series, his rejection by Shaw Brothers back in China, and then getting skipped over for David Carradine in his series Kung Fu, before gaining legend status only posthumously. While Chinese culture and movies in particular are still only beginning to make their way to Western audiences, kung fu films from Hong Kong began in the 1960s with a man named Runje Shaw whose studio turned from essentially soap opera productions into a lucrative action movie powerhouse, making Shaw one of the wealthiest men in China. Viewers will find the spread of kung fu had an impact on surprising areas of culture.
The film highlights benchmarks in the genre: Come Drink With Me (1966), One-Armed Swordsman (1967), The Big Boss (1971), Five Fingers of Death (1972), Fist of Fury (1972), Enter the Dragon (1973), Police Story (1985), China O’Brien (1990), Rumble in the Bronx (1996), The Matrix (1999), Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000), Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior (2003), and The Raid (2011). You’ll see early film footage with Michelle Yeoh, but oddly enough megastar Jet Li and his films from the 1980s through the 2000s get overlooked. The major downside of the documentary is in its third act, stretching kung fu movies to include poorly filmed YouTube videos. It also doesn’t enter into any discussion of wuxia and film in China outside of Hong Kong, it has few native Chinese interviewees, and provides only a brief flash of an image of director Quentin Tarantino, who is so widely noted as being heavily influenced by the genre. Also, there’s no mention of the culture impact to American kids of the “kung fu grip.”
The film comes from Veronica Fury, the producer of the documentary about Cannon Films, Electric Boogaloo (previously reviewed here). It has slick, in-your-face design imagery consistent with the genre and is overall informative and entertaining, bound to teach anyone something they didn’t know about Hong Kong and its pop culture creation. It includes the obligatory talking heads, but they don’t get in the way of what is best about the film. No doubt it has opinions that will create conversations among diehard kung fu movie enthusiasts, but for everyone else it’s an easy and fun two hours.
The documentary Iron Fists and Kung Fu Fists is streaming now on Netflix. (December 13, 2019 https://borg.com)

#Showbiz: 'Don't Look At The Demon' first Malaysian movie to enter American market, premiere in 250 North American cinemas By Aref Omar
KUALA LUMPUR: Local horror movie Don't Look At The Demon will be screened in over 20 countries including Vietnam, Thailand, the Philippines, Singapore, Mongolia, Cambodia, the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Poland.
Helmed by Malaysian film director and producer Brando Lee, the movie is expected to be screened in more than 250 cinemas in North America alone.
"With the global release of Don't Look At The Demon I hope to inspire local producers to reach for the stars and keep pushing forward to represent Malaysia on an international scale," said Lee during a press conference after a screening of the movie at Dadi Cinemas in Pavilion KL, here tonight.
He added: "The release of this film is not just my success but it is the success of all of us in Malaysia.
"I am extremely proud to set this benchmark and bring pride to our country.
"The film will forever be an emblem to remind Malaysia that no goal is too big if you set your minds to it."
Don't Look At The Demon follows the exploits of a group of American paranormal TV investigators and an emotionally damaged spiritual medium who travel to Fraser's Hill in Malaysia to investigate supernatural occurrences in a house built in the early 1970s.
But as the dark secrets of the house come to light, they must deal with possessions and a malevolent entity that may have a connection to the medium's own mysterious past.
The 93-minute movie, which features traditional Asian folklore from an American perspective, stars artistes from Hollywood, Thailand and Vietnam including Fiona Dourif, Harris Dickinson, Randy Wayne, Jordan Belfi, Malin Crepin, William Miller, Phan Nhu Thao and Konglar Kanchanahoti.
The event was also attended by Deputy Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Zahidi Zainul Abidin and some of the cast members, including Swedish actress Crepin.
"This film provides an opportunity for people from other countries to learn and understand the cultures, traditions and tourist attractions in Malaysia, which in turn could contribute to the improvement of the tourism sector, " said Zahidi.
"Now that we have entered the American market, we can strive to reach new heights by aiming to obtain awards such as the Oscars, Emmys and so forth, in the near future."
Produced by Barnstorm Entertainment and Bliss Pictures, Don't Look At The Demon is set to premiere in cinemas nationwide on Oct 6. (September 29, 2022 NST)
Sofia Jane: Want Malaysian film industry to reach South Korean heights? Higher-ups first need to care about art

Sunday, 14 Aug 2022 7:00 AM MYT
KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 14 — There have been many changes to the local film industry over the years, but not all of them have been good or welcome, said award-winning Malaysian actor Datin Sofia Jane.
She recalled the glory days of the National Film Development Corporation or Finas, when the premiere of films at its grounds brought not just industry players but also enthusiasts such as film students or even laymen with a passionate interest in local films.
"We need to be brave and we need to fail and be brave and fail again. Look at South Korea and how long it took them to actually be where they are today,” she told Malay Mail in a recent interview.
She said that elevating the Malaysian film industry to become an international success is doable, but the endeavour would require everybody to care about it — including the relevant ministries.
"You always end up with good intentions but there's only so much you can do because you don't have the last say in whether things can get done or not,” she said.
Sofia joined veteran actor and producer Datuk Rosyam Nor who told a forum on Thursday that the local industry can emulate the South Korean creative industry to become the country's major earner and increase its renown.
The forum had focused on Syamsul Yusof's historical blockbuster Mat Kilau: Kebangkitan Pahlawan which has grossed nearly RM100 million so far.
South Korea fell under the global spotlight after Bong Joon-ho's 2019 black comedy thriller Parasite achieved international critical and commercial acclaim, winning both the Palme d'Or and the Academy Award for Best Picture.
In response, the Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah had in 2020 tasked Finas with a roadmap — dubbed “Project Oscar” or "Road to Oscars" — for local films to win in the much-coveted Academy Awards in 20 to 30 years.
Last year, Finas submitted Muzammer Rahman's black-and-white drama Prebet Sapu starring Amerul Affendi and Lim Mei Fen for the Best International Feature Film category.
Despite the effort, director and writer Badrul Hisham Ismail said he finds it bizarre that in the country, the film industry falls under the purview of the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia, rather than the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture.
