We know everyone is going through a tough time and we’ve tried our best to hold out on our own so far.
However, we do not see how we can continue down this road if we have to remain closed until Phase 4 with the possibility of recording only in Phase 3 while we seem to be stuck in Phase 1.
We have not been sitting quietly. Over the past year, we have been pushing, tugging, fighting and hoping. There have been many parties trying to move mountains for us including ourselves – but it isn’t enough.
The arts is not deemed to be enough. Not essential enough. Not a priority enough.
All we are asking is a chance to safeguard our own livelihoods.
Let us film and record at least.
This open letter has been sent to YB Dato’ Sri Hajah Nancy Shukri (MOTAC), YB. Dato’ Saifuddin bin Abdullah (KKMM), YBhg. Datuk Mohd Rabin bin Basir (MKN) and YB Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri bin Yaakob.
We absolutely understand if you cannot afford to right now. Please if you can’t it’s totally ok. Just share this appeal. If you can,
