Between the Living and the Dead

Aperture: Asia & Pacific Film Festival 2019

Close-Up Cinema, 8 June 2019

This screening presents a selection of recent works of artists’ moving image from Asia that stages a dialogue between human and nonhumans. These works see the beyond human as also entities that embody history, speculate futures, and tell their own stories. Together they question the assumption that humans are the only audience of cinema.

Curated by May Adadol Ingawanij and Julian Ross. Introduced by May Adadol Ingawanij
