LIMELIGHT oleh Faizal Hussein + MEMOIR BUKAN MEMOIR oleh Pekin

Perlancaran buku oleh Merpati Jingga
Pernah dipilih sebagai ahli jawatankuasa SENIMAN, Faizal Hussein terpaksa melepaskan tanggungjawab tersebut kerana tidak sanggup melihat politik kotor. Faizal juga menceritakan bibit-bibit manis berlakon dalam enam filem terpenting di dalam hidupnya: Gila-gila Remaja (1985), Kanta Serigala (1992), XX Ray (1993), Fantasia (1994), Leftenen Adnan (2000) dan Bunohan (2012).

MEMOIR BUKAN MEMOIR bermula ketika Pekin dan rakan saudaranya, Danny berhijrah ke Kuala Lumpur dari Kota Bharu. Perjalanan yang dilalui itu juga banyak mengajar beliau menjadi lebih matang dan menginsafi akan kesalahan. Kesusahan itulah membuka hati Pekin untuk mengucup tangan ibunya buat pertama kali, yakni ketika beliau pulang berHari Raya pertama kali selepas merantau ke Kuala Lumpur. Pencapaian tertingginya apabila mendapat tawaran berlakon sebagai pelakon utama filem Bunohan.

3) SANTUN: Macam mana kau berdepan dengan ibu bapa kedua pihak bila kau dan makwe kesayangan masih lagi hidup berstatus pelajar? Kahwin dengan santun, atau teruskan bersekedudukan tanpa santun?

4) DARI TANJUNG MALIM KE KLCC: Seorang eksekutif muda di sebuah syarikat 'Oil & Gas' berulang-alik dari Tanjung Malim ke KLCC setiap hari. Jawabnya bermacam cerita akan keluar dan buku inilah hasilnya.

RAWSAK – Antologi
Perlancaran buku oleh Rabak-Lit
Perihal cerita-cerita semalam, hari ini, sebentar tadi, esok, lusa atau mungkin yang tak akan pernah terjadi secara zahirnya. Setiap satu darinya pernah atau mungkin pernah terbelit di minda atau bersarang ibarat nyawa, lantas diluahkan segalanya menjadi tinta yang setia beratur di hujung mata pena menunggu untuk diatur-susun menjadi kalam. Buku ini bukan untuk tontonan umum, tapi untuk makanan jiwa agar hidup masih punya harapan sementara menunggu mati.

MALAY SKETCHES by Alfian Sa’at
Book launch by Ethos Books, Singapore
Malay Sketches is a collection of stories that borrows its name from a book of anecdotes by colonial governor Frank Swettenham, describing Malay life on the Peninsula. In Alfian Sa’at’s hands, these sketches are re-imagined as flash fictions that record the lives of members of the Malay community in Singapore. “Alfian’s vignettes of Singapore Malay life are touching and funny, at once full of pathos and nostalgia. They illuminate a life that once was, and now, inevitably, with ‘progress’, what is. But ultimately they speak of dignity, quiet and undiminished.” - Datin Paduka Marina Mahathir

“WHAT ARE YOU?” Ideas of race in Peninsular Malaysia
by Yin Shao Loong & UNSCIENTIFIC MALAYSIA
We often want to know 'what' someone is before we ask 'who' they are. In the United States or Britain, race is often used to justify privilege on the basis of innate superiority. But the opposite holds true for Peninsular Malaysia: inferiority is used to justify special privileges. This multimedia lecture will explore the science behind ideas of race. It will ask what makes race still so powerful when most contemporary scientists and scholars have dismissed its validity. We will then consider options for social action.

TIMID: Angus was in love with Fay. Fay left and married another man. Devastated, Angus went to an island trying to forget everything. Angus met Beth. Fell in love. And the rest is written in this book.

KASARNOVA: Cerita cinta dua makhluk yang serik bercinta. Penuh cerita dengan definisi perangai manusia. Serasi di awal perkenalan tak buat Bali sempurna untuk Farah dan sebaliknya. Mungkin ada sejarah Farah yang buat Bali kecewa; dan sebaliknya lagi. “Lelaki bukan mencari kesempurnaan tetapi dia cari yang menyempurnakan.” Betul? Tak betul? Ayat Kasarnova. Memang manis.

PARAGRAPH 175
Film screening by Queer As Films
In Germany between 1933 and 1945, when the Nazis rose to power, 100000 men were arrested for homosexuality under the German law called Paragraph 175. Of the 4000 who survived the concentration camps, five of them have now come forward to tell their stories: the half Jewish gay resistance fighter; the Jewish lesbian who escaped to England; the German Christian photographer who joined the army; the French Alsatian teenager who watched as his lover was tortured and murdered in the camps. Their moving testimonies, rendered with evocative images of their lives and times, tell a haunting, compelling story of human resilience in the face of unspeakable cruelty.
