Is there a difference between a movie and a film? Is it true that a character that enters from the left side of a scene is usually a more domineering character? These questions and more will be answered in the upcoming Sharpened Word (SW) event by well-known film-maker, Hassan Muthalib, who will be the main speaker on August 20.
For those who are not familiar with Hassan Muthalib, also fondly known as Pak Hassan, he is a self-taught maestro in the local film industry and also the creator of Malaysia’s first animated feature film. Acknowledged as the Father of Malaysian Animation, and an omnipresent figure in the local film industry, he has won many accolades in the movie industry, both locally and internationally.
Pak Hassan, the visual storyteller, will be talking on the way cinema presents a story – in a language which, uniquely, is both visual and aural. For all cinema goers and those involved in the film industry, this will be a good opportunity to learn from the master himself, and see movies and films from a more diverse and wider perspective.
The event will be held at the Old Andersonians’ Club from 2pm to 5pm.
