Kam Raslan | Na'a Murad

Contagious Novel Writer

Kam Raslan is joined by writer and director Na’a Murad to talk about contagion movies and writing in the time of Covid-19. They started off with contagion themed movies with the likes of The Thing, The Walking Dead, The Host and more. Observing similarities on screen and in real life during this outbreak, they concluded there are many uncanny resemblances. Is life imitating art? Na’a Murad also shares his quarantine pet projects like playing the djembe and writing a novel. He finds that writing during a lockdown is more enjoyable than when the world is Covid-19 free.
