ABOUT A FEAR OF MONSTERS
Monsters have entertained and united us through our fear – from the genre defining Orang Minyak to the enduring image of Godzilla tearing through the streets of Tokyo – A Fear of Monsters explores the monsters that have traversed folklores and popular culture to the silver screen.
Featuring Asian horror films from the 1950s – 2000s, this programme is a cinematic continuation of AFA’s exhibition, State of Motion 2019: A Fear of Monsters.
