Details

Our intention is to shed light on an area of filmmaking that is both mysterious and marginalized, especially in regards to cinema in Asia. While the films may be famous or successful, the writers remain in the background, and yet their work is vital to the process of creating cinema. Through a series of often in-depthinterviews with 13 writers and writer-directors from Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Malaysia, Thailand and Iran, we encounter myriad writing experiences, methods for developing stories, and discover the ways in which screenwriters survive and endure within their film industries. Rarely seen pages from the screenplays of, among others, Laskar PelangiTropical MaladyThe HandmaidenShahrzad and Unlucky Plazafurther enrich this unique exploration into writing for the screen.

Ben Slater is a writer, editor and lecturer who’s lived in Singapore for 15 years. He’s the author of Kinda Hot: The Making of Saint Jack in Singapore (Marshall Cavendish: 2006) and editor of 25: Histories and Memories of the Singapore International Film Festival (SGIFF: 2016). He was script consultant on Ho Tzu Nyen’s HERE (2009), script editor of Joe Lawlor & Christine Molloy’s Helen (2008) and Mister John (2013), and co-screenwriter for James Leong’s Camera (2014). Currently, he’s a Senior Lecturer at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
