Asian Ecocinema in the Anthropocene

24 September 2021 10:00 to 12:00 Lecture/talk

Webinar with Kiu-wai Chu, Assistant Professor in Environmental Humanities/ Chinese Studies, School of Humanities, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

This presentation aims to offer a quick introduction to ecocinema studies in global Asian contexts. It categorizes ecocinema into three major modes: deep ecology film; environmentalist film; and perception training eco-film. Highlighting the significance of the documentary genre, it will illustrate the diverse environmental imaginations ecocritical films could offer, in this epoch we call the Anthropocene.
