NONFLIX – LIMITED AND LESS…ASIA

 

Film Festival with Short, Experimental Films and More

9.– 11. April 2021 – Online and Onsite Screenings 

Berlin, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City

FREE 

 

NONFLIX is a three days film festival streaming on-line in Berlin and on-site in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC). Emerged in the time of social isolation, the festival seeks another mode of connecting, exchanging and getting into conversation through a journey of moving images. With 17 films by 11 artists, we take a closer look on Asia as the main focus: a complex encyclopaedia of cultures, politics and societies which are triggers of the topics in the movies of our programme. The films are set up into two parts available online for 24 hours each, followed by the online discussion on the final day.

Bringing together selected films from artists Nguyễn Trinh Thi, Bernd Lützeler, Douglas Seok, Kay Abaño, and Philip Widmann in the first part of the screening, the viewer will be drawn into stories, images and sounds debating on aesthetics, ethics, memory, history, migration, globalism and colonialism. The second part switches focus from external to internal colonization and zooms in on domestic problems, racism, and intimacy and gender issues by showing films of Ratchapoom Boonbunchachoke, Popo Fan, Trương Minh Quý, Colin Huang, Vũ Thị Thu Hà, and Lu Yang. The online discussion “Pandemic Cinema” will carry out experiences about working processes and visions on the future of arts and movies.

Fostering collaboration, exchanges and encounters between non-commercial art spaces, audiences and artists, our film programme will be co-organized by Sàn Art in HCMC and Queer Forever! in Hanoi.
