Malaysia’s official pick for the Best International Feature Film category at the 2020 Oscars, M for Malaysia documents the 2018 Malaysian General Elections when the people of Malaysia, led by a 92-year-old former Prime Minister, overthrew one of the longest ruling governments in the world. Despite endless barriers thrown at them, the tense campaign pushed on with the most surprising result in the country’s history.
