Amir to speak in S'gor Chinese Assembly Hall

Date:11 June 2006 (Sunday)
Time: 3.30 pm
Venue: Auditorium, Selangor Chinese Assembly Hall (1st Floor) No.1, Jalan Maharajalela, Kuala Lumpur.

Amir Muhammad, a critically acclaimed Malaysian director, writer and producer, recently courted controversy over his latest film, Lelaki Communist 'Terakhir’', which resulted in the film’s banning by the Minister for Home Affairs.

Strategic Information and Research Development Centre (SIRD) is pleased to have Amir share his thoughts and experiences on the making and subsequent banning of his film.

Amir is a writer and independent filmmaker based in Kuala Lumpur.

He has been writing for the Malaysian print media since the age of 14. In 2000 he wrote and directed Malaysia’s first DV feature, and his works have been featured in many international film festivals including Sundance and Berlin. He has also helped produce several other Malaysian DV movies.

The official T-Shirts of Lelaki Komunist 'Terakhir’ will be launched at the talk. Get them before they’re banned.

NB. Seats are limited and reservations must be made in advance.
Please make your reservations via phone during office hours (03-79578342) or email to sird@streamyx.com

I hope the organisers are prepared in case some of the thugs that broke up the Article 11 forum land up here. These monkeys don't need valid reasons to do a bit of disrupting.
