Why didn't anyone tell us that we won two of these!
I chanced upon this website ~
~ and discovered that all of two years ago, our film "Mukhsin" had won two of these awards, including the Best Feature Film, from the international jury of that festival.
What I would like to know is, who's got the trophies?
I mean, sure, perhaps it's not as prestigious a festival as the Berlinale, but hey, "Mukhsin" already HAD won two prizes at the Berlinale. Besides, I'm not one to dismiss any blessing the Lord presents to me, however small it may seem to others.
So please, if anyone out there knows where these trophies are (someone from Grand Brilliance perhaps, or maybe they're still with the festival organisers?), please at least let me have a look at them.
These Olympia trophies would make the number of international awards won by "Mukhsin" total up to eight. (Oh, but none in Malaysia, though... ahem!)
