Still known to many in Sabah as Donald, Tun Fuad Stephens’ entire life appears to have been marked by events that, grain by grain, turned him into a human lighthouse. This documentary tells not only his story but that of the formation of Malaysia and the monumental role Tun Fuad played in bringing Sabah into the Federation of Malaya.
It also tells the story of the Kadazan society and how Tun Fuad has managed to inspire them to be the best that they can be. Along the way, episodes of political ‘cloak and dagger’ intrigues show the indomitable spirit of the man, and the people of his time.
In TUN FUAD STEPHENS : THE SABAHAN, his life is exposed, in a manner that inspires and yet also helps modern day Sabahans, Malaysians, and all others, understand the truth concerning Sabah’s place in its own country and indeed the world. Tun Fuad Stephens has earned his place in history.
This is his story.
