“Some dreams are worth fighting for”
A young woman who lives with her strict father aspires to become a champion at the popular martial art sport silat. Yasmine is the film debut of Brunei’s first female director Siti Kamaluddin, and the first feature-length commercial film ever to emerge out of Brunei. This engaging coming-of-age story explores traditional gender roles, teenage rebellion and inter-generational struggle, as the protagonist Yasmine (played by Liyana Yus) pushes the boundaries to achieve her dreams within the middle class family setting.
