As two young actors found out, portraying characters with autism requires dedication, Harith Haziq Kholdon, eight, and Izzy Zulkhazreef Zulkefli, 16, star in the critically-acclaimed Malaysian film Redha, which premiered here on Tuesday.

Co-written and directed by Madam Mona Riza, 49, Redha was inspired by real-life stories.
