Scholars, activists and filmmakers:

The multiple roles of film in and on Asia

This workshop brought together scholars, activists and filmmakers from Asia and beyond. The participants discussed 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 a number of recent documentary films focusing on developments in Burma/Myanmar, Indonesia, China and Japan were screened.
