Check out some interesting piece of writing from local Director, Zan Azlee.

The following is lifted from Malaysian Insider, where he has a column:

APRIL 23 — I’m still suffering from the cold winds of the San Francisco Bay area. Most recently, after the screening of my films and lecture at University of California, Berkeley, I was part of a panel discussion entitled ‘Making movies in Indonesia and Malaysia”. Aside from me, the other panellists included the late Yasmin Ahmad’s producer, Elyna Shukri, and veteran Indonesian actress, Jajang C. Noer. It was moderated by Dr Marshall Clark from Deakin University in Australia.

First of all, I was a little intimidated being in the presence of such experienced industry professionals. Elyna had produced some of Malaysia’s most thought-provoking films in recent history, while Jajang has starred in more films than the years I have been alive!
So most of the time I was just trying to gather my thoughts together. But all in all, the panel discussion, which was organised by the UC Berkeley’s Centre for Southeast Asia Studies, went alright and I don’t think I was at lost for words.

One of the key issues we discussed was identity — of being Malaysian or Indonesian and also being Muslim. If you read last week’s installment, then you would know that the theme of the film festival was on Islam.
