Edge of Obedience - Ahmad Zakii Anwar wants to paint the nude and other taboos in homeland Malaysia. This thought-provoking film touches on current issues in the Muslim world surrounding artistic expression and religious freedoms, through the personal journey of the controversial painter.
Ahmad Zakii Anwar may well be Malaysia’s best-known artist. Edge of Obedience looks at the way Ahmad Zakii Anwar’s art continues to defy convention in an increasingly radical Islamic world. It is the first time a documentary has looked at the painter and his work in detail and examined its meaning in both a radicalising society and a liberal one.
