Focus Asia: Memory and Documentary Film: Exploring Painful and Forgotten Memories in China, India, and Indonesia
April 25, 2013 - 09:15-April 27, 2013 - 18:30
Documentary film can play an important role in helping to retrieve repressed memories and commemorate painful, violent, and forgotten events. The films we will screen about the Great Famine in China 1959-1961, the violence against communists in Indonesia in the mid-1960s, and communal violence in Mumbai, India, in 1992-1993, show this and also reveal how the filmmakers deal with these memories in different ways.
Two documentary film projects based in China respectively India will be introduced and nine films from and about China, India, and Indonesia will be screened with the directors present for Q&A on 25-27 April.
The events will take place at the Centre for East and South-East Asian Studies, Scheelevägen 15, Lund, Room Alfa 1010 and at Kino, Kyrkogatan 3, Lund
A limited number of tickets are available for the screenings at Kino. Please contact Nina Brand before 19 April if you are interested in obtaining tickets.
