Nasir Jani Melawan Lembaga Puaka

Sinopsis Filem
1992. Rockers menangis, rambut mereka dipotong. Langsung dari kaca televisyen. Apa yang berlaku di sebalik peristiwa awal 90-an yang cukup mengejutkan di Malaysia ini sekaligus memberi kesan kepada pengkaryaan Nasir Jani pada tahun-tahun berikutnya? Dokumentari ‘Nasir Jani Melawan Lembaga Puaka’ mengekori perjalanan pembikin filem-kultus ‘Kembara Seniman Jalanan’ ini dalam merenung kompleksnya budaya penapisan di Malaysia. Pertembungan Mahathirisme di awal-awal pemerintahannya sehinggalah budaya autoritarian yang cukup ironis, dokumentari ini juga menanggapi perspektif rencam dari pembikin filem muda, Amanda Nell Eu dan Steven Sarathbabu yang bergelut dan menggelecek dengan logik penapisan serta apa yang berlaku di baliknya.
