In the Gallery, October 2014: A Dream Surely Vanishing
More details here
A Dream Surely Vanishing is an on-going, joint photo documentary project. Its narrative vehicle is Burma's Irrawaddy River, as it flows past a stunning land and people of vast kindness being eroded by ill- planned economic development. Purposefully aimed away from the popular topics of ethnic armies, religious violence and drug abuse, this project seeks to connect its audience with the underrepresented people of Burma and the issues they face, while at the same time painting a picture of a breathtaking land being heralded as one of Asia's last economic frontiers.

Contemporary World Film Series: Phllippines Comedy: 'Ekstra'
The lively comedy 'Ekstra' ('The Bit Player'), which has won audiences at festivals around the world, won over audiences at the Fcct too. The film deals
with a woman desperately trying to win the role of an 'extra' in a melodramatic TV serial, and having to face the madness and mayhem
inside the sets of a film. The role of the 'extra' was played by Vilmas Santos, one of the top actresses of the Filipino screen, who also happens to be the Governor
of of an important province in her country.
Local Filippino food like pansit noodles, chicken adobo, puto sweet, added to the enjoyment of the evening. The screening was attended by prominent members of the Filipino community, led by Ambassador HE Jocelyn Baitoon Garcia.
