I am chuffed to announce that we are making good progress with Rungkopi. There have been many long hours spent in the edit cave shaping and carving this film over the past month. It is a team effort with translators (thank you Alex) who have been working on the Dusun material and others who are making this film possible.
The trailer for Rungkopi will be released on April 2nd 2023 and you can find information about this and more about the film on the newly launched Rungkopi website: www.rungkopi.com
Thank you for your support.
