The Quarterly remained, for fifteen years, the one and only serious yet lively platform for writing on the cinemas of Asian countries. Given that the writers were mostly Asian apart from some keen and long-standing followers of Asian cinema from the West the magazine offered, for the first time, a truly authentic point of view, a look at films from within their cultures. The book gives a bird's eye view of the style and substance, art and craft of these cinemas and captures some of the Asian air it let in!
