A documentary is useful for giving people a valuable insight into a person or issue, a peek behind the scenes of how it works or what they do. We like to think our recent article on great documentary films, focussed on individual artists, demonstrated that… and in a similiar spirit we’d like to give you a peek behind the scenes at Zakii’s own art studio!
As ever, this is but a sneak preview of what we’ll be exploring in the finished film. Regardless, we hope you’ll find it an interesting look at our film’s star in his natural element. All images taken from the official Ahmad Zakii Anwar Facebook page.
They say a picture paints a thousand words, but while we hope you find these pictures insightful we know they’re only half the story. Within the film, we aim to explore why Zakii paints what he does- what draws him to different subject matter- and in doing so fill in the blanks, so to speak, that these photographs create. Don’t forget to keep an eye on Twitter and Facebook, and remember to look at the main Zakii site for updates on our next festival appearance: more details on that very soon!
