The philosophy of pragmatism was initiated in America in the last 19th century. It reflected the philosophy the Americans and it widely applied in the domain of education. One of the prolific pragmatism figures is John Dewey who was popular with pragmatism in the version of instrumentalism. He was also very popular as an educator who propagated experience as an effective basis to gain knowledge. To explain Dewey’s thought, Muallaf film which was directed by Yasmin Ahmad in 2008, has been chosen due to its lucid depiction of education in different context. Therefore, this article will discuss the meeting point between Dewey’s pragmatism and the concept of education in the Yasmin’s perspective through two selected sequences which specifically featured the concept of experienced based education. Though there are not many formal educational scenes in the film, the strength of the scenes in the selected frames emphasized the importance of education in society. This study is qualitative research design using semiotic analysis of verbal and non-verbal in the Muallaf and library research to retrieval of data or materials needed to complete the study came from the library, including books, dictionaries, journals, documents, and so on. The result of this study has concluded that Yasmin Ahmad has clearly featured the concept of experience as a process of the lifelong learning which is congruent with Dewey’s pragmatism’s thought.
