Thoughts on Films – Episode 68: The Buzzing of BEEs and Crickets

After an unplanned hiatus, Fikri returns with a special episode in the bag! He interviews Cheng Thim Kian, a Malaysian filmmaker with not one, but two films released in 2020. In the first part, they discuss ‘BEE, My Friend’, looking at its theme of education and charting the journey from being a video made for a school to one that is selected for international film festivals. In the second half, they focus on ‘When the Crickets Sound’, a film competing in the My RODE Reel, billed as the world’s largest short film competition, before briefly discussing his upcoming projects, including ‘Merentas Awan’.
