At one level, there are four subjects in this documentary: Brillante Mendoza – ultra neo-realist and pioneer in the regionalisation of Philippine Cinema; Pen-Ek Ratanaruang – American-educated “isolated man” and improvisational Thai New Wave auteur; Eric Khoo – an icon of Singaporean filmmaking and a food-loving, heat-hating lover of country and cinema; and Garin Nugroho – multicultural political filmmaker and magical realist extraordinaire.

At another level, there are four other subjects – the lives of ordinary people in provisional Philippines, an increasingly divided Thailand, censorship in Singapore, and an Indonesia finding its way through messy democracy.

Altogether, this is a wonderful celebration of the diversity and richness of Southeast Asian Cinema.
