Q&A with filmmakers after the screening.
Hanoi DOCLAB is extremely proud to present the screening of DOCLAB FILMS – Vol. 2, with four brand new films from our students. (Vol. I with 9 films screened back in September, 2010 was a “sold-out” event).
These experimental documentary films – loosely expressing individual filmmakers’ observations and impressions of a marginalized working-class neighborhood in Hanoi — were recently co-produced by DOCLAB and Jamie Maxtone-Graham for the Long Bien Picture Show – a collection of photographs and films, sponsored by the British Council.
Over the course of three months, the four filmmakers (Tran Thi Anh Phuong, Pham Thu Hang, Do Van Hoang and Tran Thanh Hien) and four photographers (Barnaby Churchill Steele, Boris Zuliani, Tran Xiu Thuy Khanh and Jamie Maxtone-Graham) were asked only to make works of the things that they responded to as individuals and in the ways they wanted to. There was no effort to create a theme or to impose any meaning, the thought being that in the confusion of ideas and perspectives that there actually might be some better reflection of the place.
With Vol. 2, we’re particularly delighted to see how mature and committed our students have become as filmmakers. Please come celebrate with us!
