Brunei Celebrates 1958


A documentary by the Malayan Film Unit filmed in 1958 showing the celebrations of Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien III with other members of the Royal Family including the current Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah at the opening of the Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque. Also present are other regional leaders, and politicians of the newly formed Federation of Malaya, Tunku Abdul Rahman. The film shows glimpses of Brunei - Brunei Darussalam - over half a century ago - with views of Brunei Town (now Bandar Seri Begawan), Kampong Ayer and elsewhere in the country, notably the activities of the Shell Brunei Petroleum Company at Seria.
