From Mario Lopez,
The Center for Southeast Asian Studies (CSEAS), Kyoto University is
proud to announce that it will host a film forum to show five selected
documentaries by independent, young film-makers from Southeast Asia on
the topic of plural co-existence. This is an OPEN forum and we invite
anyone who is interested to participate.
Date and Time: March 11 (Tuesday), starts from 13.00
Venue: Large Conference Room (Room 330), Inamori Foundation Building 3rd floor (MAP)
Southeast Asia is a place of rich diversity and home to over 600
million people. This diversity, a product of centuries of social,
cultural, political and religious development, is at the heart of
Southeast Asian societies. Migration, work opportunities, and the flow
of cultural goods all create opportunities for people across to the
region to meet each other with people living side by side. In this
process they contribute to the creation of different groupings known
as “plural societies.” This forum hopes to stimulate, and raise
awareness of how Southeast Asian filmmakers consider the plurality in
their societies and visually document it.
This year we have a selection of short films from Thailand, Vietnam,
Cambodia, and the Philippines.
