Saloi the Movie

KUCHING – Among the Iban folklore, Apai Saloi is a well-known person both for his stupidity and comedy, but when he is known as Sabaginda Bujang, he is noted for his intelligence and bravery. Even legendary heroes like Keling, Sampurai, Bungai Nuing and Pandak Sagatak have high regard for him.

But his son Saloi is a different personality.

Allen Tinggie Trading Sdn Bhd of Sarikei has come up with a film to introduce Apai Saloi and his son in a movie – Saloi the Movie.

Joseph Allen, producer of the film, said that a soft launching will be held at the Kuching Park Hotel over a dinner at 7.30 p.m. on 14 February 2010 (Sunday).

Allan said a grand launching will be held later on at a different venue, after which it will be screened at “Panggong Wayang”.

The one and half hour “Saloi the movie” in Iban language is believed to be the first Iban film to be screened at cinemas.

Allan called on Iban organisations such as Sarawak Dayak Iban Association (SADIA), Sarawak Dayak National Union (SDNU), Sarawak Dayak Graduates Association (SDGA), Dayak Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DCCI) and Dayak Cultural Foundation (DCF) to support the film by buying tables at the soft launching.

Each table is priced at RM500.00. Tickets are still available from Joseph Allen – HP 019-8154707.The Broken Shield

We fought together for independence...obviously we should grow together in terms of business opportunities and education opportunities. In other words, our film industry should have been on par with the one in west Malaysia.
