Dear List Members,

Aperture: Asia & Pacific Film Festival part 2 opens in London on 11 September with the third in our *Asia Through the Aperture workshop and discussion series*,* *jointly organised by the Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media (CREAM), University of Westminster and Aperture: Asia & Pacific Film Festival.

Asia Through the Aperture explores contemporary and historical Asian moving image culture and art, and seeks to reframe discussions around ‘curating Asia’ and moving image practice.

*Asia Through the Aperture #3 will take place on 11 September (12.15pm-2pm) at Close-Up Cinema, London <https://billetto.co.uk/e/asia-through-the-aperture-workshop-3-filmmaking-in-southeast-asia-tickets-382514>*.

This is a free event, but booking is essential: *www.day-for-night.org/asia-through-the-aperture-workshop-3/*.

*Daniel Mattes *of Anti-Archive, producer of Cambodian director Kavich Neang’s award-winning *Last Night I Saw You Smiling *(closing film at Open City Docs 10 Sep), and subject of this year’s Aperture/Director Focus *Daniel Hui*, will join us for a discussion on their artistic practice, documentary filmmaking and collectives in Southeast Asia, alongside a selection of short films:

*New Land Broken Road* (Kavich Neang, Cambodia 2018, 15 mins)
*Animal Spirits* (Daniel Hui, Singapore 2013, 9 mins)
*Wanderlust* (Daniel Hui, Singapore 2009, 5 mins)

Aperture/London: part 2 will include the first full show of Daniel Hui's body of work  <https://www.day-for-night.org/daniel-hui-focus/>to date. Intimate and impressionistic, Daniel Hui's films interrogate Singapore’s mythic narratives of national history and collective identity while exploring the country’s complex class and racial dynamics.

Supported by Arts Council of England and Purin Pictures, Aperture/London: part 2 <http://www.day-for-night.org/aperture/> focuses on experimental and documentary filmmaking in Southeast Asia, and will take place 11-15 September at Genesis Cinema, DocHouse, Close-Up and The Horse Hospital. The festival also tours to HOME (Manchester), Tyneside Cinema (Newcastle), Filmhouse (Edinburgh) and CCA (Glasgow) September-October.
