Petronas’s Kaamatan webfilm 2021 is so Sabahan!!!

KOTA KINABALU: It is the second year that people are not supposed to celebrate Kaamatan as it was before.

Staying home and avoid gatherings are the best way to stay safe and alive. But, fret not, there’s always other ways to usher the festival at home.

This year, PETRONAS celebrates Kaamatan with a fully animated Webfilm titled ‘Bambaazon’, a story exploring themes of courage, resilience and kindness in the face of adversities.

Set in the scenic backdrop of Sabah’s vast paddy field, the Webfilm tells the story of friendship
amongst nature’s inhabitants co-existing peacefully until the sudden appearance of what could be a
threat to the main character, depicted in the film as a wild baby rice plant named JonJon.

This webtoon also connects people of Sabah, near and far, as they are using Sabahan slang.

The 3.23-minute film celebrates the spirit of community and the will to persevere when faced with uncertainties, pushing the message of strength in unity.

“Our Webfilm, ‘Bambaazon’ is an ode to the courage and resilience shown by Malaysians during this challenging period.

“We hope to inspire and spread joy while celebrating acts of courage and kindness in the face of adversities.”

PETRONAS Senior General Manager of Group Strategic Communications, Datin Anita Azrina Abdul

‘Bambaazon’, PETRONAS’ first-ever animated Kaamatan Webfilm, is now live and available for
viewing on PETRONAS’ official YouTube channel and Facebook page.
