The Land Below the Wind, SABAH is the second largest state in Malaysia; which consists of 13 states and 3 federal territories. Sabah’s population is made up 33 indigenous groups that communicate in over 50 languages and 80 ethic dialects. The Kadazan-Dusun is the largest ethnic group in Sabah that makes up almost 30% of the population. Blessed with an abundance of natural resources and unimaginable beauty of its nature, Sabah is the melting pot of unique and distinctive cultural identities and ethnicity of its people.
This is the first animation in Malaysia to be fully narrated in the Kadazandusun language, a first in the country’s animation history. Director Geoffrey Sinn: “And since we wanted to bring the story overseas, and introduce our culture to a global audience, I wanted it to be as authentic as possible which is why I kept it in the Kadazan language. ”
Currently, Sabah is still contested by the Philippines and Malaysia. Sabah Malaysia or Sabah Philippines? What is the truth here? Who really owns it?
This is the fault of the British empire that created this dispute between the two countries. They should have stopped the lease of the territory and returned it to the rightful owner before they granted Malaysia”s independence.
