This section explores and looks back on the history of women's films under the theme of “Women’s Filmmaking in Asia.” This year, we collect works directed by Feminist Video Activism wom which celebrates its 20th anniversary, ZOOMANET, a feminist culture and art planning platform that also celebrates its 20th anniversary, Yangon Film School in Myanmar, and Japanese Labor Union.
Yangon Film School is the first film education institution in Myanmar. It contributes to promoting and spreading the concept of documentary and independent film in Myanmar. Yangon Film School has encouraged women and other minorities to advance into film industry by adopting 50/50 male-to-female ratio in enrolment while considering their ethnicity. The films show the history and recent trends of this film school. [HWANG Miyojo]
