There are some here at ScreenAnarchy who are admirers of Yasmin Ahmad's work. She has even contributed a film review for us here before. So it came as quite a shock for us when we heard the news yesterday that the Malaysian director had collapsed during a meeting at a TV station in Kuala Lumpur, and was subsequently taken to a nearby hospital for an emergency surgery.
She is reported to be in stable but critical condition. She had suffered a stroke during the meeting, and an in-house doctor and some others helped to apply CPR on her until the ambulance arrived.
Our thoughts and prayers are with her and her family.
