Abstract

Malaysian cinema has undergone several phases since it was first introduced into the country in the early 1900s. As a twentieth century phenomenon, the cinema is an exciting medium and invites much exploration and creativity. Nevertheless, in a country like Malaysia, the cinema is also often a point of controversies and public debate. Whatever the course it takes, Malaysian cinema is still seen as unstable and risky business. Most observers have said that it is still faceless and in need of an identity. And thus the search for a Malaysian cinema is ever on-going.
