NANG 2 — Scars and Death
NANG 2 — Scars and Death
NANG is a 10-issue magazine dedicated to cinema in Asia. A limited-edition collection of words and images on cinema, for knowledge, inspiration, and enjoyment.

Issue 2 is dedicated to Scars and Death. We asked writers, filmmakers, scholars, bloggers, and artists from Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, the USA, Indonesia, Singapore, Vietnam, India, and Kazakhstan to pitch in without feeling the need to conform to a particular form or tone of writing. 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.

With contributions by: Gulnara Abikeyeva, Paul Agusta, Chris Fujiwara, Pujita Guha, Daniel Hui, Kim Jungkoo, Adrian D. Mendizabal, Miko Revereza, Shireen Seno and Kidlat Tahimik.

And a special section with photographs by: Nguyen Trinh Thi, Sean Lee, Dennese Victoria and Jippy Pascua.
