Yasmin Ahmad – Critically-acclaimed multi-award winning film director and writer
Yasmin Ahmad (July 1, 1958 – July 25, 2009) was a critically-acclaimed multi-award winning film director, writer and scriptwriter from Malaysia and was also the executive creative director at Leo Burnett Kuala Lumpur. Her television commercials and films are well-known in Malaysia for their humour, heart and love that crosses cross-cultural barriers, in particular her ads for Petronas, the national oil and gas company. Her works have won multiple awards both within Malaysia and internationally.
This video is from the very first TEDx in Malaysia, TEDxKL 2009. It was Yasmin’s very last public speech before her sudden passing.
