Capturing Twilight: A Film by Nirmala Karuppiah

5 November 2011

 Nirmala Karuppiah presents a screening of her short art film, “Capturing Twilight”, at the Three Shadows Photography Art Centre in Beijing, China.  The award-winning photographer explores and pays tribute to the ancient art of Chinese Opera. While Chinese Opera is still practiced in a contemporary context and forms an integral part of Malaysia's heritage, it is nonetheless an endangered performance art in Malaysia.  Karuppiah’s film sheds light on the value of this tradition and the importance of preserving it.
