Join us as we celebrate our 10th year of screening Southeast Asian cinema! The Fall Film Series is now underway! Films are typically scheduled during the semester every Wednesday evening at 6:30pm on the campus of the University of Hawai′i at Mānoa, Center for Korean Studies Auditorium. All screenings are FREE and done in conjunction with the UH course ASAN 491 Cinema of Southeast Asia. Sign up on our homepage for weekly film notices.
Upcoming/Most Recent Film Screening:
This week we screen Laos’ first ever crime-thriller, a well-written account of a mechanic who violently crosses paths with a rich college kid.
Beginning its 10th season in Fall 2014, the Center’s weekly Southeast Asian Film Series serves as an academic forum to introduce our local community to Southeast Asian filmmakers and their films that are rarely seen outside of the region. Over the course of this weekly series more than 7600 people have attended the free screenings of subtitled films, a number of which were translated and subtitled by students in the CSEAS subtitling program. The films selected each year are purchased in Southeast Asia using Center funds or are given to the Center in support of our educational mission. Most of the screened films are then given to the UH Southeast Asia Library Collection as a resource for use in the classroom and other community educational needs.
