At once a politician and an ordinary citizen, Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai stars in a six-minute video entitled Citizens in conjunction with the forthcoming 60th National Day celebrations.
Produced by Pete Teo and Liew Seng Tat, the video released today has the Transport Minister playing a dual role – himself and a disgruntled citizen engaging in a no-holds-barred conversation.
Citizens reflects the prevailing sentiment in the country, especially the apprehensions of the Chinese community.
This is not Liow’s first foray into acting; he appeared in 15Malaysia and Hari Malaysia shorts which were also produced by Teo.
Liow’s wife, Datin Seri Lee Sun Loo makes a cameo appearance towards the end of the video.
Check out the video which surprises with its stark approach, poignant flashbacks, and hopeful ending.
The man is a pretty decent actor too!
