Mahathir: 22 Years, 22 Voices traces a road that, over the course of 22 years, led Tun Dr. Mahathir from his inauguration as the country’s fourth Prime Minister, down a path of political consolidation, and finally as the steward of a breathtaking economic transformation. Technology can make an image lie. Events can be staged. The camera never lies. Lighting may help enhance or change a mood, but the lens, when looking at a man or woman just looks at what’s on view. It is not aware of the biases or the emotions of the finger triggering its blink. The subject may try to hide his feelings but the eyes, the lips tell tales.
