Talentime, Yasmin Ahmad’s multi-award-winning final feature, returns once again to the world of young people and the ways in which they negotiate the possibilities of the future. Here, she deftly explores the emerging relationships that develop between two youngsters from different cultural backgrounds in the build-up to a local talent show. As ever in Ahmad’s work, she uses a disarmingly accessible style to discuss the wider tensions and prejudices that permeate Malaysian society.
