With cinemas banned in Kelantan, film buffs travel to Terengganu for fix

AMIRUL Hakimi was willing to endure a three-hour journey with his family from Kota Baru to Kuala Terengganu to catch a movie that revolves around Kelantan culture, owing to the decades-long ban on cinema by the PAS state government.

The 21-year-old said Kelantan people like himself are proud of the movie “Duan Nago Bogho”, which is directed by Sabri Yunus and promotes the traditional art of Mak Yong that has been banned for 28 years by PAS on the grounds of it being inconsistent with Islamic teachings.
