Malaysian cinema and negotiations with modernity : film and anthropology by Gordon Gray( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis examines Malaysian cinema in the context of the various processes and discourses of modernity. Analysing the processes of modernity which Malaysians are engaged with provides a crucial theme by which to demonstrate how various socio-political ideologies, institutions, and mechanisms may be promoted, rejected, or otherwise negotiated. This negotiation takes place in both Malaysian society and the cinematic representations of that society. Therefore, two discrete disciplines have been incorporated, those of anthropology and film studies. In the course of the thesis, discourses of modernity, encompassing processes and institutions, are addressed in terms of existing ethnographic literature, my own ethnographic research, and in the analyses of contemporary films. The introduction of an ethnographic background for the society in which the films are produced opens new vistas for film analysis. However, while the injection of anthropology into a film study has been a major concern, the importance of the reverse is also argued. Further, this thesis provides a multiple rendering of analyses, arguing that, as a symbolic media and/or art form, cinema is inherently open to alternative readings, 'mis'-readings, and rereadings. One of the goals of thesis is, through a different synergy between film and anthropology, to provide some alternative answers to the ever-present question haunting the Malaysian cinema industry, namely "Why aren't our films successful?"
