In The Light of History: Visions of a Nascent Nation
Salon Session (Presentations and Panel Discussion) Sunday, 21 August 2016 National Gallery Singapore, Auditorium
Using Hele Sa Hiwagang Hapis (A Lullaby to the Sorrowful Mystery, 2016) by Lav Diaz as a starting point, the panel explores the artistic investigations in relation to national narratives and myth-making. The session explores how Southeast Asian history is represented and challenged through cinema and visual art, particularly in the pre-independence era with the burgeoning of nationalism.
An initiative by the Asian Film Archive, REFRAME is a series that aims to bring together diverse audiences and the film community at large through an innovative range of programmes, encouraging dialogue and examining topics surrounding cinema and the moving image.
By asking the hard questions and re-looking at trends and issues critically, the series will construct meaningful frameworks that bring forth multi-perspective viewpoints and an increased appreciation of film and culture.
