Scholars, activists and filmmakers: The multiple roles of film in and on Asia
This workshop brings together scholars, activists and filmmakers from Asia and beyond. The participants will discuss their different views of and experiences with film, including using films as a research tool, documenting and engaging with social issues, developments and injustices in and through film, and appropriating film as a form of witnessing and activism. At the workshop we will screen a number of recent documentary films focusing on developments in Burma/Myanmar, Indonesia, China and Japan.
The workshop is open to a restricted number of participants who need to register with nina [dot] brand [at] ace [dot] lu [dot] se (Nina Brand) before 25 April. Please specify if you plan to attend one or both days of the workshop.
