Tiger of Malaya
Synopsis

Written by: Alfian Sa'at
Directed by: Mohd Fared Jainal
Dramaturgy by: Shawn Chua
Performed by: Farez Najid, Siti Khalijah Zainal, Rei Poh, Rei Kitagawa, Yuya Tanaka

In 1943, the Japanese film 'The Tiger of Malaya' was released. Based on the life story of Tani Yutaka, a Japanese man who lived on the east coast of Malaya, the film portrayed him as a patriotic agent who liberated the Malay natives from British imperialists and Chinese capitalists.

Now, more than 70 years later, a group of actors are going to reenact scenes from the film. Real Malay actors will replace the 'brown face' Japanese actors in the original. Chinese actors will play antagonists who are 'less evil'. A Japanese actor will try to find a space of performance between the wartime propaganda classifications of heroes, villains and victims.

As they comically attempt to 'correct' history, they discover how their identities are sustained not by the accuracies of history but the stubbornness of myths.
