Malaysian Cinema in a Bottle: 

A Century (and a Bit More) of Wayang

-------

Hassan Abd Muthalib

This is a history of wayang, the Bahasa Malaysia word for cinema, which was kick started by a gaggle of Chinese, Filipino, Indian and Indonesian writers, producers and actors before the genre settled into indigenous hands. Despite this, the author, who has been in the Malaysian film industry for more than half a century himself, explains that the country's cinema has never strayed too far from its roots in wayang kulit, traditional puppet theatre, and Malay opera. 280 pages with an index.
