About Director

A former student of Akademi Filem Malaysia, Osman Ali is steadily carving his name as a feature film director. He is versatile, creative and most of all, talented as a storyteller, combining creative elements in storytelling with a very local flavour. Known for his more risqué works, such as ‘Bukak Api’ (a story of transvestites in Kuala Lumpur) and his short film ‘Malaikat di Jendela’ (An angel on the windowsill), he is able to write and direct his own scripts. The scripts range from comedy, such as ‘Toll Gate Girl’, to such serious teenage telemovies such as ‘Surat untuk Bulan’ and ‘Rumah itu Duniaku’. Osman’s short films received awards at international film festivals in Cannes and Rotterdam. He has written this film based on a short story which won the Best Experimental Film at the Malaysian Video Awards in 2001 and was selected for Director Fortnight at Cannes in 2001
