Abstract

Abstract Sepet (2004), the sequel Gubra (2006), and prequel Mukhsin (2006), directed by Yasmin Ahmad, narrate the three major relationships of Orked, a Muslim girl in Malaysia negotiating them at different points in her life. The essay considers Ahmad's cinephilia and sentimental style, and their relation to the trilogy's postcolonial themes.
