Back in 2016, the Singaporean film Fundamentally Happy which highlights the issue of paedophilia amongst seemingly pious men, was banned by Malaysia’s Film Censorship Board (Lembaga Penapis Filem, LPF) because of its “sensitive content”.
Dubbed as a controversial yet educational film, it can now be viewed by Malaysians, all thanks to MUBI!
A few days ago, the online streaming platform tweeted out a clip from the film and since then, it has gained the attention of numerous movie buffs in Malaysia. While it is considered a dark movie, netizens shared their excitement for the film and thanked the streaming platform for making it available.
MUBI’s tweet racked over 400,000 views and was been rt-ed more than 500 times. Take a look:
FUNDAMENTALLY HAPPY diharamkan di Malaysia pada 2016 kerana mengangkat kisah pedofilia yang berlaku di antara seorang lelaki Islam dan kanak-kanak Cina. @adibahnoor
