Our beloved Sangeeta Krishnasamy has attended the internationally revered Cannes Film Festival all the way in France. Much like French cinema, Malaysian cinema is also a vibrant, eccentric, and experimental medium. The French have contributed immensely to pioneering new wave cinema, and to be in the midst of not just French influence but also that of other internationally renowned celebrities like Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Martin Scorsese, Leonardo DiCaprio, Scarlett Johansson, and many more is a huge honour.
Sangeeta Krishnasamy is a celebrated Malaysian Indian actress and model who starred in locally produced superhit films like Vetti Pasanga and Vennira Iravugal. Her work in Vennira Iravugal is particularly noteworthy, as the film garnered such international reception that it received a special jury award at the Norway Tamil Film Festival. It is not lacking in importance to state that Sangeeta is a proud jewel of Malaysian cinema. Sangeeta, from the onset of her career, has always been a highly accomplished artist. In fact, her debut film was the much-celebrated Indian-Tamil filmmaker Venkat Prabhu’s Goa.
“It’s a wonderful and healthy environment; everything is so vibrant, and everyone just wants to talk about film and collaboration.
Sangeeta Krishnasamy, in an interview with Sinaran Daily, talks about how the Cannes Film Festival is a great opportunity for collaboration and inspiration.
Sangeeta went into great length in her Sinaran interview on how Cannes is a terrific learning opportunity for her, especially as a woman in production and filmmaking. She spoke not just for her individual growth but for the growth of the entire Malaysian film industry itself. Sangeetha shows keen interest and passion for learning about the entire film industry from all the great film makers, producers, and distributors all around the world. And there is no better place to gain these vital insights than Cannes, which is an internationally respected film festival.
It is safe to say that the Malaysian film industry is on the right track with devoted and talented folks like Sangeeta Krishnasamy on its side.
