Yak, 2012: Southeast Asian Speculative Cinema
A more light-hearted interpretation of the Nyak/Yak legend of Southeast Asia drawing from the characters of the Ramakien, or adaptations of the Ramayana. As the saying goes, your mileage may vary. It brings to mind many of the designs of the film Robots and many familiar tropes we've seen in children's films. But it's not often we get to see films like this making a big push for the international market.
