M For Malaysia, the coming documentary film on Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, has a world famous artiste singing its heartfelt theme song. And she is none other than our very own Malaysian sweetheart, singer-songwriter Yuna!
The song titled Bermula Kita (We Begin) is a duet between Yuna and another US-based singer-songwriter, Rendra Zawawi.
Its powerful lyrics, among others read:
“Bermula kita semimpi sejiwa, mengejar impian, bermula kita di penghujung senja menunggu fajar yang baru di langit kita yang satu”
They reflect Dr Mahathir’s journey to help forge a New Malaysia by leading Pakatan Harapan (PH) to victory in the 2019 general election!

M For Malaysia is directed by Ineza Roussille, the Prime Minister’s grand daughter, and Dian Lee. This marks Ineza’s first feature-length film and Lee’s directorial debut.
Ineza is a documentary filmmaker for non-governmental organisations.
Oscar-winning filmmaker Ruby Yang served as the film’s creative consultant and the original soundtrack was scored by Rendra. Ineza’s mother Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir and Lee are the film’s executive producers.
The film will premiere in Malaysian cinemas on Sept 12!
