Issue 5 of NANG now available!

Intellect is pleased to announce that issue 5 of NANG, a 10-issue magazine dedicated to cinema in Asia, is now available. For more information about the issue, click here >> https://www.nangmagazine.com/issues/5

 
Issue 5
 
INSPIRATION
 
Guest Editors
Goran Topalovic & Eric Choi

Issue 5 is dedicated to Inspiration. Starting from candid interviews with twelve filmmakers spanning different generations and backgrounds, this Issue collects some of the key cinematic sources of their creative inspirations before delving into them via accompanying critical essays, conversations, and special features. The intention is both to shed light on the under-explored nexus between cinematic practice and experience, between watching, making, and being inspired by films, and to open up the conversation onto figures and works across industries and eras. As present, as it is invisible, inspiration can emerge from anywhere, often out of the blue, at any stage of the creative process. Ultimately, this Issue invites us to celebrate all sources of inspiration, and all resulting works, as a testament to the myriad of human interactions and artistic endeavors that make up the cinema.
