Wim Wenders Weekend
In the 1970s and 1980s Wim Wenders was second only to Rainer Werner Fassbinder as a god of the New German Cinema. This poet of the screen both idolised American cinema, like the practitioners of the earlier French New Wave, and was repelled by the dominance of Hollywood. His central theme is often the same: a man, alone and isolated, wanders the cities of the world in search of truth either large or small.

1) SYBILOGY (Director: Amir Muhammad)
The life of World War Two resistance heroine Sybil Kathigasu is narrated against present-day images of her town, Papan, by history buff Law Siak Hong and her own words.
Amir Muhammad is a writer and movie-maker based in Kuala Lumpur. His previous work includes The Big Durian (2003) and Lelaki Komunis Terakhir (2005). His two upcoming movies are the co-directed horror film Susuk and the documentary Apa Khabar Orang Kampung, both slated for release in early 2007.
2) MATAHARI (Director: Liew Seng Tat)
The sun doesn't always shine.
"You're a bum. Fuck your films. Go get a job and a life" said the husband of the woman Liew Seng Tat is in love with.
3) SUNDAY (Director: Ng Ken Kin)
On a typical Sunday, while his wife is away, a man meets up with his friends and talks about things that matter.
Ng Ken Kin made his first short film, Tong Wah Heng, three years ago and has made a few more over the years. His last short film "28 Hours Later' won the Audience Choice Award at the Malaysian Shorts March 2004, and has travelled to Bangkok, Jakarta, Singapore and Portugal. He was also one of the writer/directors of Profil Seni, a local tv documentary program which won the Best Documentary Series at last year's Anugerah Seri Angkasa. He now juggles delicately between his passion and his day job in a media advertising company.
4) IN SOLITUDE, A CAMERA-EYE (Director: Kok Siew Wai)
A meditative piece of the two places that the artist calls "home": one in America and another one in Malaysia. There is no visible story. From America to Malaysia, the setting has changed, but "the eye" that sees (and feels) is the same. It has captured "time".
Kok Siew Wai works with video, sound and performance, exploring intimate subjects in everyday life. She has participated in international festivals such as Beyond/In Western New York Biennial 2005 (USA), Signal & Noise (Canada), 25hrs International Videoart Show (Spain) and more.

Ex-tutor at Multimedia University where he taught Film & Animation. Now a freelancer. Working on his first full-length movie.
7) ANARCHY (Directors: Sylvia Lim & Lai Kim Koon)
'The ideology of revolution begins from the hair,' Ah Da believes, and this affects the relationship between Ah Da and Ye Zhi. What links anarchy's hair, revolution and love?
