Making films like Kurosawa
The local film industry is now witnessing a revival with new titles released almost every month.
Nonetheless, some criticism have been leveled against local producers and directors especially for over emphasising on materialistic values and lacking on determination to come up with compelling productions.
This is among the observation made by Aswara’s (Akademi Seni Budaya dan Warisan Kebangsaan) Film and Video Faculty Dean, Adman Salleh.
“There is a propensity towards materialistic values that include high production cost but not the determination to succeed with good quality productions,” he told Bernama during an interview recently.
