Asia Through the Aperture Workshop #3
A workshop jointly organised by the Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media (CREAM), University of Westminster and Aperture: Asia & Pacific Film Festival.
In partnership with CREAM, University of Westminster, Aperture hosts Workshop #3 continuing discussions arising from the first Asia Through The Aperture Workshop held in 2018. Asia Through the Aperture is an ongoing discussion series exploring contemporary and historical Asian moving image culture and art, and reframing discussions around ‘curating Asia’ and moving image practice.
Daniel Mattes and Daniel Hui in conversation
Daniel Mattes, producer of Cambodian director Kavich Neang’s award-winning Last Night I Saw You Smiling and part of collective Anti-Archive, and subject of this year’s Aperture/Director Focus Daniel Hui and part of collective 13 Little Pictures, will join us for a discussion on their artistic practice, documentary filmmaking and collectives in Southeast Asia.
Asia Through the Aperture workshops aim to create time for conversational exchanges drawing on the experiences, perspectives, research and practice of all participants. Contributions from invited speakers are intended as catalysts for broader dialogues. We invite active participation as workshop attendants interested in sharing experiences and perspectives, and in exploring the scope for collaboration with Aperture and CREAM’s joint initiative.
