Ah Niu’s first Chinese film in 2012, the “The Golden Couple”
The screening of “Ice Kacang Puppy Love” in 2009 has received a lot of great reviews from both oversea audience and film critics, the film has successfully opened up a market for local Chinese film and set forth a wave of support for local films among the Chinese community. This year, Media Prima will join forces with Asia Tropical Films in presenting “The Golden Couple” directed by Aniu (Tan Kheng Seong) in 2012, a film with much anticipation to be the next Chinese blockbuster made in Malaysia.
Media Prima group advisor (Chinese language content) Goh Hin San noticed Aniu after seeing his film “Ice Kacang Puppy Love”. He felt that the film fully reflects Malaysia's people and culture and he believes that this style and direction must continue in hope of contributing to a better future for the Malaysian Chinese film industry. He later learned about the challenges Aniu faced during the shooting of “Ice Kacang Puppy Love” which made him feels that the local film industry should help each other for mutual support. Then it was in a lucky coincidence that Mr. Goh got in touch and got to know Aniu, and has selected him to be the first partner of Media Prima in making Chinese movie.
Not only giving its full support in the making of this local Chinese film, Media Prima will also promote it with its ntv7, 8TV and OneFM.
