Criticisms, Tropes and Cultural Export

In this episode of A Bit of Culture, Kam Raslan is joined by two people who are involved in films, but via different routes and roles. Documentary filmmaker, journalist and lecturer Zan Azlee returns, while ex-director general of FINAS, Kamil Othman makes his debut on the show. Zan kicks off the episode by talking about movie criticism in Malaysia and whether movie critics are destroying Malaysian films. Following up on that, Kam compares the movie tropes in South Korean films to Malaysian films. Kamil Othman continues the observation on South Korea by recalling his experience observing the cultural export policy of the country materialising in the early 2000s.
