Celebrating the classics of Asian cinema and beyond, Restored is a regular series showcasing newly restored films. Highlighting Asian films that have been meticulously preserved and restored by different institutions from across the world, the platform revisits these classics in a new light and allows them to be appreciated by new generations of audiences.

October will feature Kaki Bakar, part of the Asian Film Archive Collection. Based on the 1939 short story Barn Burning by William Faulkner, U-Wei Bin Haji Saari’s film was the first ever Malaysian film to be selected to compete in the Un Certain Regard category at the 1995 Cannes Film Festival.


Digital scans of the 35mm print have been made and are preserved by the Asian Film Archive. The video restoration was carried out by IMAGICA Lab.Inc. in 2019 and completed in 2020.
