About the event

Meniti Senja

Sinopsis Filem
Peningkatan golongan warga emas terbiar di dalam pusat-pusat penjagaan adalah fokus filem “Meniti Senja”. Dengan mengambil contoh pengalaman sebuah pusat jagaan di Puchong, karya tersebut memaparkan kisah bagaimana mereka yang dahulunya ayah dan ibu, kini dibiarkan di dalam pusat-pusat tersebut bagi menghabiskan usia mereka. Penghuni pusat tersebut juga bercerita tentang pengalaman mereka didera, dieksploitasi dan diabaikan. Tetapi trend ini semakin meningkat kerana Malaysia sudah mencapai status negara menua (aging nation) pada 2020. Persoalannya, adakah masyarakat bersedia untuk menghadapi cabaran-cabaran ini memandangkan kita semua akan berusia?

Film Synopsis
Reflecting the breakdown of traditional family values in modern Malaysian society that marginalizes the elderly, Meniti Senja explores the alarming rise in the elderly being left to fend for themselves in aged care centres - removed from the comfort of homes they knew and children they raised. Recounting the stories of people who were once mothers, fathers, grandparents - now slowly aging amidst strangers within the walls of a care home in Puchong, this film tells their heart-breaking stories of abuse, exploitation and abandonment. Age eventually catches up with everyone and by 2030, Malaysia’s population >65 will increase to 15%. Are we witnessing our own fates in a not too distant future?
