Matahari Books & Sunway University College
with the association of MERCY Malaysia
present the launch of the book
YASMIN AHMAD'S FILMS
by Amir Muhammad
If you'd like to be the first to get your hands on this book, do come along :-)
After this, the book will also have launch events in Seoul, Jakarta, Paris and Singapore.
Yasmin Ahmad left a vibrant legacy, and it is still strange to talk about her in the past tense.
In order to deal with his grief, Amir Muhammad, fellow Malaysian filmmaker and friend, watched anew her six feature-length films (RABUN, SEPET, GUBRA, MUKHSIN, MUALLAF and TALENTIME), as well as several of her most popular commercials. Neither an obituary nor a conventional work of film criticism, this book was written just a month after her funeral and is Amir's personal look at the stories, but with quite a few tangents of his own.
Chatty and informative, YASMIN AHMAD'S FILMS can be devoured not only by established fans but newcomers to her work. It is also a tribute to one of Malaysia's most amazing daughters.
All the writer's royalties from the first edition will be donated to the MERCY- Yasmin Ahmad Fund for Children.
Pages: 248 (including 24 pages of colour photos)
