Visual Documentary Project, "Care" in Southeast Asia

On 15 March 2013, the Center for Southeast Asian Studies, Kyoto University, hosted a Visual Documentary Project whereby five makers from Southeast Asia were invited to show their works and share ideas on the subject of visually documenting care in Southeast Asia.

Project Synopsis: “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.

The documentaries are now available online for viewing.
