What was it about Yasmin that has stirred so much emotion? Was it her smile? Her creative talent? Her story telling? Her international acclaim? For me it was simple. Her heart which shone through everything and determination to do what's right and to hell with whatever anyone thought. Love your forever Yasmin.

TRIBUTES FROM FELLOW INDUSTRY COLLEAGUES & FRIENDS...
       
 

RABUN (2003)
A telemovie featuring an elderly couple who move out of the city to a village, but this exuberant and affectionate pair  find that life in the countryside isn't all that pleasant after all. Based on the lives of Yasmin's parents.

VOICES AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PYRAMID (2006) Yasmin's first documentary commissioned by the ad agency she works at - Leo Burnett. It is about the working class women of India: their dreams, their fears, what they think of multi-national companies, how they form their own companies to survive, what they hope for their children...

Sepet (Chinese Eyes) 2004: In the end, Ah Loong is involved in a motor vehicle accident while Orked is going to England to pursue her studies. It is not clear if he lived or died until the sequel, Gubra which shows that Jason really did die. After the credits finish rolling however, Orked is shown wearing a wedding ring sleeping beside Jason, who also has a wedding ring. In Mukhsin, Jason and the adult Orked are shown to be living together. However, the adult Orked is not called by her name in this scene as the young Orked is. Watch the Trailer >>

Gubra (Anxiety) 2006: Tells a story of love and forgiveness, its possibilities and the hopes it brings. Essentially there are two stories which parallel each other, the first is the continuation of Orked’s (Sepet’s protagonist) life while the second tells the story of a muezzin; Pak Bilal Li and his efforts to assist two prostitutes in finding redemption for themselves and their families. Seven years after Jason/Ah Loong, Orked is now married to a much older guy, Arif (Adlin Aman Ramlie). Everything seems ideal in their marriage at first glance; Arif loves Orked to bits and theirs seem like a match made in heaven. Watch the Trailer >>

Mukhsin 2007: is a movie about how children learn about love and friendship. During the school holidays in the village Orked, ten years old meets Mukhsin who is two years older than her. They soon become best friends, play together and even dress alike. Mukhsin likes Orked very much and he feels that he is falling in love with Orked, but a misunderstanding between them changes everything. Watch the Trailer >>

Muallaf (The Convert) 2008: Tells a tale of three souls finding solace in religion. Two Malaysian sisters, Rohani and Rohana, run away from home to escape their wealthy father’s mistreatment. They find refuge in a small town where they get to know Brian Goh, a young Catholic schoolteacher. Brian is irresistibly attracted to the two girls. Impressed by their extraordinary courage in the face of adversity, their relationship forces him to confront the ghosts of his own childhood. Watch the Trailer >>
