Datuk Gong: Spirit of the Land, is a feature documentary that comprehensively covers the origins, structure, diversity and relevance of the Datuk Gong worship as observed uniquely in Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and Southern Thailand. A personal labour of love for the past 4 years and counting, the documentary is finally coming together with answers to some of the questions that has brought me across the country many times over.

From small shrines under trees to large temples of many shapes and sizes, the Datuk Gong (or sometimes Datuk Keramat) makes his presence known through many different forms. Popularly dismissed as a common Chinese deity, the Datuk Gong has in fact been part of Malayan culture across all ethnicities for many centuries, even prior to the arrival of Islam and major deities as observed in Chinese religion today.

In the modern context, worship of the Datuk Gong is extremely important in the study of Chinese identity in Malaya (present day Peninsula Malaysia and Singapore). Without a formalized structure or literature to serve as a reference, much of the structure and form of the worship remains undocumented to this day.

Datuk Gong: Spirit of the Land is more than just a documentary; It is an education, a time machine for us to retrace the history of Malaya and understand its history for a perspective never before explored. It is a celebration of our Malaysian identity as a dynamic fusion of a diverse range of ethnicity, religions and culture, unlike anywhere else in the world.

Directed by Mahen Bala and produced by Law Siow Fei, the feature documentary is scheduled to be completed by mid-January 2014.

拿督公:土地之神。是一个通过深入观察新马,印尼,泰国拿督公祭拜的结晶,内容概括拿督公起源,结构,分布等。经四年的研究走访大街小巷,一些问题终于找到了答案,我们将把这些结果,集合成这一部对历史,文化研究的纪录片。
拿督公拥有许多不同的形象,普遍认为是华人的神明,但其实不然。拿督公其实经历百年的演变,从马来人崇拜至今日成为华人的神明,它的历史甚至可追源至道教和回教传入马来半岛之前,
在现代,拿督公的发展对南洋华人的研究极为重要,但可惜的是对于拿督公的祭拜方式和结构,时至今日并没有任何正式的记录与体制。
这不只是一部纪录片,它更是一本教材,一部时光机让我们用从未有的角度了解马来西亚的历史。有别于世界上任何一个国家,我们拥有一个多元种族,宗教,文化的社会,我们因为此而感到骄傲。
导演:马亨.巴拉 监制:刘晓蕙
这部纪录片计划将于二零一四年一月中期完成。
