"Doon po sa Amin..." (In my homeland)
Gallery Opening Friday, 4th October
"Doon po sa Amin..." has no exact translation in the English language, it's a Tagalog idiom that literally mean "In my Homeland".
This collection of photographs is an expression of each of the artists' experience of their country and it's people.
Scenes of life; hardships and the joys; work, play, companionship, innovation, rituals and customs, peace and order, even in times of social disquiet and disaster, generation on generation, faces with stories, a land that provides. Each of these images will tug at your senses one way or another, all will enlighten us to the resilience of the human spirit, the complexities and simplicities of human survival on this planet.
The many years that aged these events have not tarnished the effect on the viewer.
The last formal gathering of these three photographers was in the year 2000 when they were working as part of the "The Manila Times" photo team.
Their careers in photography were defined in the 1980's while working for various wire agencies, newspapers and magazines. Their dedication to socio-documentary photography has always been of utmost priority.
The pictures that make up this exhibition came from the archives, some of are part of books, others printed in newspapers and magazines. But all of the pictures have contributed in their own way to bringing awareness about the realities of life and the continuous battles and joys we face on a daily basis.
Contemporary World Film Series 2013
Peru Film Screening - Last Feature Film of the Year
The 2013 'Contemporary World Film Series' came to a close with the screening of a strong and moving film from
Peru 'The Days of Santiago', which has won more than 35 international awards and was Peru's Oscar entry in 2006.
The distinguished audience included five Latin American Ambassadors.
Unfortunately many people were prevented from attending the event, due to the mass street-rallies in the city.
The Embassy of Peru and Runa Run Thai-Peru Association served wine, their famed 'Pisco Sour' drink, and a bevy of
snacks from the acclaimed Peruvian restaurant Above 11
All in all, an interesting and enjoyable evening, ending an eventful year of good cinema.
