Synopsis

A centuries-old form of theatre is under threat in the state of Kelantan. The wayang kulit, the art of shadow play, has become the victim of conservative state policies and Islamic puritanical influences. Many wayang kulit practitioners are now caught in the conflict between the art and the government. This documentary looks into the lives of the few remaining master puppeteers who hold steadfastly onto their dying art despite the great odds.
