CREAM Research Fellow Julian Ross is co-curating the CREAM-supported screening Hyphen: An evening with NANG based on issue 4 of NANG magazine he co-edited with filmmaker Maryam Tafakory. The screening will take place at 6.30 on 5 September at Regent Street Cinema as part of the Open City Documentary Festival.
What is Hyphen?
Hyphen is a programme featuring short films and video works from artists and filmmakers who voluntarily or involuntarily moved outside their country of origin. Presented as part of the London launch of the latest issue (Issue 4: In & Out) of NANG, a magazine on Asian cinema, this programme hopes to counter the narrative of hostile simplification that has embroiled the topic of migration in recent years by celebrating the diversity of voices and experiences that the hyphen brings.
Films by Theresa Hak Kyung Cha, Rehana Zaman, Hiraki Sawa, Prapat Jiwarangsan and Alnoor Dewshi will be screened and there will be a panel discussion between the co-curators, artist Rehana Zaman and contributors to the issue, Shama Khanna and CREAM’s British Academy visiting fellow Graiwoot Chulphongsathorn.
