Details

Issue 3 is dedicated to Fiction. Writers and comic artists from around the world were invited to present creative responses to an Asian film or films of their choice. The selected stories range from straightforward fan fiction, in which protagonists continue to exist after their movie has seemingly ended, to semi-autobiographical accounts in which the experience of watching the movie becomes a catalyst or reference. Illustrators were also invited to respond to the selected movies’ posters in the context of the stories. So this Issue is devoted not to the people who make films, but to those who watch films. And yet it invites us to consider: When we think about a movie we have seen, aren’t we also “making” (or “remaking”) that movie in the confines of our own imagination?

Amir Muhammad is a Malaysian writer, publisher and occasional movie-maker. Selected filmography: The Big Durian (2003), The Last Communist (2006) and Voyage to Terengganu (with Badrul Hisham Ismail) (2016). He also runs a publishing company, Buku Fixi, for urban pulp fiction in Malay and English.
