Congratulations to Yi Cui, one of the members of Chemodan Films, for the selection of her film Of Shadows for the Rotterdam International Film Festival (27 JAN – 7 FEB 2016)!
Our documentary work on “Project 2131″ is now at its editing stage. “Project 2131″ was launched by the Chinese government a few years ago to use digital media for education and entertainment in geographical areas and social settings where positive state presence has declined. We shot footage in 2012, 2013 2014, and 2015 mainly in the rural areas of Sichuan.
Our documentary on the origins and development of the “memory industry” relative to the remembrance of former foreign residents of “Manchuria” (the former colonial name of North-East China) is now at its final editing stage. It includes footage shot in China, Poland, Germany, and Japan, as well as archival material. A first cut was screened at a “Manchuria Association” conference at Sophia University in Tokyo on June 9, 2015.
