A Time to Swim

A Time to Swim

In the suburbs of Montreal, Mutang Urud is a stay-at-home dad. But in Malaysia, he was a voice of resistance for the indigenous peoples of Sarawak. A Time to Swim follows Mutang as he returns home for the first time since his exile in 1992. The remote forest village, however, is not like he remembers it. Contrary to the will of the elders, cousins who once stood by him at the blockades are now welcoming the timber companies. Despite the threat of a lingering arrest warrant, Mutang can't resist taking up his old cause. A Time to Swim explores the effects of environmental destruction on the fabric of a community through the personal story of Mutang's search for belonging in a place where the very ideas of home and heritage are slipping away.

Very early in this film, I formed an interpretation which I believe to be completely correct, and borne out by the plot and details. I thoroughly enjoyed the journey, and was surprised by many aspects of the film along the way.

Ashley Duong really surprised me! Not only did he assemble a surprisingly talented cast, but he was able to make you really connect with the situation.

Here's a fine example of a film that may makes up for an exciting watch due to its director Ashley Duong extra-ordinary sense of creating spectacles that feel like breathing artworks.
