SEAxSEA: The Southeast Asia x Seattle Film Festival is a film festival featuring films that explore Southeast Asia in its diversity, emphasizing underrepresented communities and youth-produced visions of the past, present, and future. It will be held at Thomson Hall 101, University of Washington Seattle Campus, from 4:30pm to 7:30pm, January 24-26, 2018.
The festival will feature two full-length documentaries from indigenous female storymakers from Southeast Asia. “War is a Tender Thing” by Adjani Arumpac features the conflict in Mindanao, Philippines, vis-a-vis her own heritage as half-Muslim and half-Christian. “The Peace Agency” examines the role that a grassroots women’s organization founded by Lian Gogali has in maintaining peace and rebuilding Poso, Indonesia. Many short films from the region, most of them student-made will also be shown.
