YesAsia Editorial Description

Estranged from his father since a young age, Malaysian director Lau Kek Huat traveled to Taiwan to study filmmaking, and then returned home with a camera in search of answers. Lau traced back his family history from his absent father to his taboo grandfather, who passed away at the young age of 29 after joining Malaysia's Communist movement. Lau's grandmother never talks about her late husband, and not a single photo of him remains. To find out what inspired his grandfather to sacrifice everything in the name of revolution, Lau set out from Malaysia to Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Thailand to talk to other former Communist party members of his grandfather's generation. His journey into his family history and a buried chapter of Malaysian history is documented in Absent Without Leave.
