I love Asian action movies. Being a female white director in Asia isn’t necessarily a common thing, but Malaysia has proven very open and very supportive to my visions.

Interview: Aliff Zulkifli (producer, PM, 1.AD) about KINKS

Photo: Nancy Ford I’m a megalomaniac. I wanna do everything! Right now I can’t say if it’s film making or music. I need both. If I have to make a choice between acting and behind the camera I choose to stand behind the scenes. And there’s graphic design too.. :p Read the full interview on

Interview: Danny ‘dC’ Chua (exec producer) about KINKS

Bodyguards (dC & King) carry Jay (Julie) out of the minister’s house I always suspected of Virginia as someone with (at least) a little perversed side.

Interview: Sofia Goh (“Amelia”) about KINKS

Sofia next to Tati during the jungle shoot I somehow always have had this impression that directors are meticulous, brilliant, artsy megalomaniacs who are never happy with other people’s work.
