“Care”in Southeast Asia: Every Day and into the Future

“Care,” is one of the most important aspects of human life at any time in our life cycle and is a fundamental part of all societies. Yet, the term “care” is western and has no exact corresponding term in Asian languages. This film forum hopes to stimulate, and raise awareness of how Southeast Asian filmmakers consider the relevance and meaning of “care,” and how they visually document it in their own societies.Five documentaries were selected by an international committee from a total of 36 original entries submitted from the region. This is an open forum and we invite anyone who is interested to participate.

 


Date and Time: March 15 (Fri) 13:00-18:15 P.M.
Venue: Large Conference Room, Inamori Foundation Building

 

On 15 March, 2013, the Center for Southeast Asian Studies (CSEAS), Kyoto University will host a film forum to show five selected documentaries by independent, young filmmakers from Southeast Asia, on the topic of“care.”This project is part of “Southeast Asian Studies for Sustainable Humanosphere” program.   [..Event Calendar]
