How do we see Asia? How does our seeing reflect what we have seen via film and other media? Join ASNC’s Young Professionals Group (YPG) for an exploration of the ways in which film and media shape our understanding of Asia and Asian culture, both in the U.S. and globally. The panel discussion will feature leading journalists and filmmakers who bring a wide range of perspectives and experiences to this complex topic.
The panel will be presented against the backdrop of a Global Lives Project (GLP) 12-screen video installation featuring video of daily life in Kazakhstan, Japan, China, India, Indonesia, Lebanon, South Korea, Vietnam, Nepal and Turkey. Also featuring pop-up cuisine for dinner, cash bar, and music. This event is part of Global Wednesdays, a Global Lives Project initiative designed to spark discussions about global citizenship, new media, and film education.
The Global Lives Project is a video library of life experience, designed to cultivate empathy across cultures.
