Details about the film
Title : Maryam Pagi Ke MalamDirector: Badrul Hisyam Ismail
Writer: Badrul Hisyam Ismail * Faisal Terani
Stars: Sofia Jane * Vanida Imran * Pekin Ibrahim
Length.: 103 minutesLanguage : Malay with English subtitles.
Synopsis: Maryam is a 50-year-old woman of Muslim origin who comes from a wealthy family with aristocratic ties. Beautiful, intelligent, and serene, she is an art gallery director. She meets a young African man from Sierra Leone at work, whom Maryam wishes to marry. In this carefully paced drama, where cats and durian fruits become recurring metaphors, Badrul Hisham Ismail gives us a highly harsh portrait of society. Maryam shows us how the hypocrisy inherent in power structures infiltrates the hearts and minds of people with devastating effects.
