ISU Students Travel to Malaysia to Shoot Graduation Project

The film “Abang Adik,” which is nearing the hundred-million-dollar mark at the box office, was entirely shot in Malaysia. The plot portrays the society of migrant workers in Malaysia, depicting the hardships of stateless laborers and revealing the plight of the lower class in Malaysia. Similarly, “Ali Akau,” the graduation project of senior students from the Department of Film and Television under the College of Communication and Design, was also filmed entirely in Malaysia. The plot revolves around intergenerational education and racial issues. This work has also been shortlisted for the preliminary selection of the PTS Innovative Story.

International Students Fulfill Their Dreams at ISU

Just at the age of twenty, Nguyen Thi Mai Phuong is quite lively in personality, always chatty, and can’t seem to stop talking. It’s hard to imagine that just a year ago, she was still a young girl who couldn’t speak Chinese, spending her days in a mobile phone shop in her hometown in Vietnam, earning a meager income by selling phones and accessories. “I want to go to college, but I don’t know how long I have to work to save up for tuition fees, and in Vietnam, it’s even less likely to work part-time and finish college,” she said. The gloom of wasting time seemed to linger.
