Slanted visions: Returning the Gaze
Asian European Media Maker Forum
18:00 – 19:30 | Theater 2

After the premiere of the three CinemAsia FilmLAB shorts, we will investigate the role of Asian European media makers in challenging stereotypical representations of Asia and Asians in Europe. Images of Asians are not only stereotypical, but also painfully absent within media productions. While societal reality shows us a ethnic diverse image, media representations lack this diversity. This panel explores how these filmmakers, actors and producers articulate the need for the recognition of (multi)cultural identities and why they consider this important.
