Kelab Seni Filem proudly presents Zan Azlee's new feature documentary --
I'm Muslim Too!
Malaysia, 2008; Zan Azlee, 73 mins
Many see Malaysia as a moderate Islamic country that has found a unique and harmonious balance between religion, secularism and multiculturalism. Zan Azlee decides to learn and find out more about Islam and his own identity as a Malay Muslim. He embarks on a journey to the heartland of Islam, the Middle-East, with nothing but his video camera and a bag full of instant noodles. He meets a brutal heavy metal band in Iran, discovers a Syrian version of Low Yat Plaza in Damascus, hangs out with a couple of Palestinian dudes in a camp in Beirut and learns about sex from a bunch of artists in Jordan.
In between teaching film at HELP University College, Zan Azlee dabbles in filmmaking. Several of his shorts have been shown at Kelab Seni Filem's Malaysian Shorts series, as well as at international film festivals. He is currently shooting a 13-episode documentary about foreigners who make Malaysia their home for NTV7.
Zan will be in attendance to discuss his film with he audience after the screening.
Introduced by Hassan Muthalib.
