Curated by Jaxton Su and Nien-Ting Chen, The Unsettled Dust - Asian Short Film Festival will feature short films that narrate first-person accounts of different personal, regional and cultural phenomena occurring within Asian life, whilst presenting the social mentality that has been engendered by modernisation and rapid economic development.
The film festival gathers works from diverse parts of Asia. While presenting a diversified discussion of the various simplified interpretations and representations of the living situations and experiences, social issues as well as hidden mentalities of different localities in Asia, the film festival aims to portray an honest and multifaceted perspective of Asian contemporary life that brings to the fore the daily lives of commoners under the influences of globalisation and westernisation.
As part of George Town Festival 2019, the screening will take place in an outdoor cinema space, with a filmmakers' talk and Q&A session following after.
Featuring works by: Darae Baek (South Korea), Ronnie Chau & Ip Wong (Hong Kong), Kuo-Wei Chiu (Taiwan), Sarah Choo (Singapore), Anukul Chueamon (Thailand), Naonori Fukazawa (Japan) , Bei Chen Han (China), Yu-Chen Kuo(Taiwan), Hong Hu Lau (Malaysia), Yun-Ting Ma (Taiwan), Sabrina Poon (Singapore) and Shubhangi Singh (India) #hinbusdepot
