Scars & Death

August 17, 2017 2017年8月17日

Following the success of NANG‘s inaugural issue, “Screenwriting,” the Asian cinema-focused magazine takes a more abstract leap behind the scenes of filmmaking in their second publication “Scars and Death.” Korean film critic, publisher, and lecturer Yoo Un-Seong partnered with Filipino filmmaker, writer, and musician John Torres as this issue’s guest editors. Together with the NANG team, they explored the theme of “the death of cinema,” or rather, the changes in cinema, and the real life suffering involved with making a movie.

继第一期“编剧”《NANG》Issue 1 大获成功后,在第二期“伤痕与死亡”中,以更为抽象的方式,带领读者一探幕后电影制作的主题。韩国电影评论家、出版商和讲师Yoo Un-Seong携手菲律宾电影制片人、作家和音乐家John Torres,担任本期杂志的客座编辑。《NANG》杂志团队通过对“电影的死亡”的探索——或者更确切地说是电影的变化以及电影拍摄中各种现实困难的变化,来诠释本期主题。

The contributors for this issue include writers, filmmakers, scholars, bloggers, and artists who hail from the likes of Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, the USA, Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam, India, and Kazakhstan. The poignant brief is as follows: “Write about scars and death. Die for the piece and swear by it. For the scarred workers, the dedicated, the desperate enough, for those dying to be offered another chance. For the films we have lost, the scenes that are scarred by time, those missing frames, abrupt endings and low resolutions. For the ones who died on- and off-screen, for deaths we haven’t seen. For those who risk life savings for a fictional piece. For all others who toil away, INT/EXT, their bodies taking it, DAY/NIGHT.”


Like issue one, “Scars and Death” is also 120 pages. The new issue features stories from Gulnara Abikeyeva, Paul Agusta, Chris Fujiwara, Pujita Guha, Daniel Hui, Kim Jungkoo, Adrian D. Mendizabal, Miko Revereza, Shireen Seno and Kidlat Tahimik, as well as photography by Nguyen Trinh Thi, Sean Lee, Dennese Victoria and Jippy Pascua.
