KUALA LUMPUR, 11 October 2018 – Media Prima Berhad (“Media Prima” or the “Group”), announced today that its content creation arm, Primeworks Studios, has exclusively premiered the film Pulang to over 190 countries on Netflix, marking its debut to global audiences via the U.S.-based streaming platform. The movie was initially released for Malaysian Netflix users on 28 September 2018.

Produced by Primeworks Studios and directed by the award-winning Kabir Bhatia, Pulang tells the story of a fisherman from a small Malaysian village who takes a leap of faith and works on merchant ships travelling the world, hoping to return with riches for his wife and son. Though he promised to return home, he was never seen again, leaving his grandson to uncover his story six decades later.

This epic film, which stars Malaysian actors Remy Ishak and Puteri Aishah, is filled with stunning cinematography, a majestic musical score and a beautiful story that unfolds across the world from Malaysia to Hong Kong to Liverpool.

Released in Malaysian cinemas on 26 July 2018 to massive critical acclaim, Pulang has received exceptional praise, with some describing it as “a wonderfully crafted story of love and romance,”[1] .

Ahmad Izham Omar, Chief Executive Officer of Primeworks Studios, said: “One of our missions at Primeworks Studios is to bring Asian stories to the world. We are very excited to have Pulang on the extremely popular streaming service Netflix with millions of subscribers globally. We are happy that everyone around the world will be able to experience this wonderful film from Kabir Bhatia.”

The release of Pulang on Netflix is in tandem with Media Prima’s efforts to grow its reach and audience globally. Primeworks Studios continues to expand into new platforms and territories through its successful array of content.
