When: 5:30pm, Saturday, 14 October.
How Much: Gratis, dong.

By the way, the boy in our promo postcard that you see is named Awie. He is the first person who speaks in the documentary.

Amir, congrats on your latest work, Apa Khabar Orang Kampung. I am one of your followers especially your articles ever since your "Perforated Sheet" days back in 1994 methinks.

You are one of the most talented writers and film directors Malaysia has ever had. Good luck!!!

Come to the talk and all will be revealed :-)

SUSUK has been pushed back to an early 2007 release. Too many 35mm films are in the queue for the rest of the year.

My apologies for not being able to attend your Silverfish talk - sometimes K.L. seems a long way from Ipoh.

Is there any way I can get a copy of the DVD for The Last Communist, and get to see your other works.

Unfortunately as a puteh I have not caught Bhasa Malay yet, but I am trying.

Hi. Glad that LKT is making places in festivals all over. After I discovered Chin Peng My Side of History, I heard about your film. So I was dead curious. But I missed you at SIFF and Substation... and I missed the DVD at HMV too. I realised that it has been staring at me but....the cartoonish cover had somehow 'disguised' it from me. hehe. So now I know. Can't wait to get it. Congrats!

Dear Martin

The Last Communist DVD is indeed available in Singapore, that bastion of democracy. in shops like Kinokuniya, Borders and HMV. And if you are ever in KL do let me know; your digital art intrigues.

Thank you for that information - I now kick myself, slowly and probably not too hard, for not taking up rahman's invite.

It would be good to meet up if and when you are free.

Dear Martin,

It's Bahasa Melayu, not Bhasa Malay. Try harder.

Terima Kasih.

siew eng,

check the perlembagaan. its still bahasa melayu. what's wrong with "melayu"? the Americans don't bother changing 'English' to 'Americanese' (or anything else) eventhough they/the speakers aren't English.

cantonese is still cantonese wherever it is spoken, no? or do they call it hongkinese or something else in hong kong?
