Tiger Stripes

Directed by Amanda Nell Eu

A Malaysian Mean Girls with claws, director Amanda Nell Eu’s spirited debut about an 11-year-old girl who channels the beast within was a sensation at Cannes Film Festival 2023.

Zaffan is an accomplished student and pre-teen rebel who’s the leader of her pack at school. However, she quickly becomes an outcast when her body undergoes extreme changes, transforming her into a mythical creature that’s definitely not going to behave in class.

Rooted firmly in the landscape and culture of Malaysia, yet universal in its concerns and genre touchpoints, this is a coming-of-age story that roars.
