PETROLIAM Nasional Bhd (Petronas) launched its latest webfilm “UNI” together with Malaysians counting down the upcoming National and Malaysia Day celebrations at Petronas’ Anniversary Celebration concert at The Plaza, Petronas Twin Towers, KLCC, on Aug 17.

The webfilm screened live at the event is about life in a university campus that represents a “mini Malaysia”, with different races, languages and values, which also reflects Petronas’ “Anugerah Kita” festive theme for 2019, about the abundance of blessings that have been bestowed on us.

“UNI” tells the story of two young men entering university life — the shy Roger Junior Buang from Sabah and the more outgoing Rizwan from Kedah.

Petronas senior GM of group strategic communications Zahariah Abdul Rahman said: “The webfilm explores our colourful dynamics as a multicultural society and how at times, it seems like our differences appear to overwhelm us.

“Yet, at the end of the day, it is those differences that actually bring us closer together. ‘UNI’ brings out the uniquely Malaysian traits that unite us — understanding and acceptance.”

The launch of the webfilm coincides Zahariah(front row, 2nd from left) and GM (communications management) Khairul Hisham Mazlan (front row, 3rd from left) with the film director, actors and singer of Petronas’ National and Malaysia Day webfilm during the launch at The Plaza, Petronas Twin Towers, KLCCwith Petronas’ 45th Anniversary celebration, themed #BersamaMerentasZaman and #OurTimeTogether.

The concert featured Malaysia’s top 45 artists over the past four decades including Amy Search, Ella, Jaclyn Victor, M Nasir, Ruffedge and others.

Malaysians are also invited to experience Petronas’ first Time Travel Truck for a time capsule adventure through an immersive video experience of the company’s milestones since its inception in 1974.

The truck will be travelling to 22 different locations across 10 states until Sept 14, 2019.

Visitors stand a chance to receive limited edition anniversary enamel pins when they participate in activities at the truck.

Petronas is also showcasing the “Tree of Tales” — a digital LED screen installation at Suria KLCC, that tells the story of #OurTimeTogether from 1974 to the envisioned future, from Aug 17 to 23.

The National and Malaysia Day webfilm can be viewed on Petronas’ official YouTube channel, and to find out more about Petronas’ 45th anniversary celebration, visit
