Part of State of Motion 2019: A Fear of Monsters
The film history exhibition at the National Library building, Plaza presents a constellation of monsters who have lived on our silver screens since the 1920s. It traces the transfiguration of the monster once based on folklore, through to the Cold War and to the rise of an internationalised market for culture.

Visit our Facebook page for a full list of programmes happening during State of Motion 2019: A Fear of Monsters.
State of Motion 2019: A Fear of Monsters investigates the histories and trajectories of Asian horror and focuses on the monsters at the intersections of art, popular culture, and cinema.
From the multilingual Pontianak to the genre-defining oily man who seeped his way across borders, monsters have entertained and united us through our fear. Audiences should be very afraid.
