Video: Welcome To Kampong Radioaktif

Rare earth meets rare talent as director Liew Seng Tat unleashes his fertile imagination on the Lynas controversy and fantasizes about our post-apocalyptic Malaysian village. After the radioactive dust has settled, we find that the village’s leaders and entrepreneurs have all gone to a better place (and we don’t mean heaven). Left behind are the innocent victims who couldn’t afford to flee their ancestral homes, their lives turned upside down — for some, quite literally. Liew Seng Tat’s vision is unique and funny and guaranteed to crack you up. Yet, in the aftermath of the laughs, there lingers a poignant aftertaste. Is it thorium? Maybe, maybe not. But don’t worry, they tell us it’s not dangerous.
