Project Description

Ikal Mayang

Inspired by the Malay saying, ‘rambut sama hitam, hati lain-lain’, Ikal Mayang refers to the long black wavy hair which is also the jewel crown for every female. On a bigger perspective, it is a storytelling movement that wants to highlight the importance of storytelling and to be heard while improving women’s share of voice, particularly in the mainstream media. By using simple and popular culture such as short films – the Ikal Mayang programmes uses short films as a tool to create conversations and discussions about issue faced by society and highlight the unique stories which can also related to every human being.
