Coming Attractions with Asian Film Archive

12.11.20

Guest: Kiu-wai Chu

A prescient tale from the 1970s of a government’s slow reaction to an urgent pandemic, a documentary of five female mine clearers risking everything on the job, and a glimpse of intimacy in Kuala Lumpur — these are just some of the films being screened at the Asian Film Archive under their latest programme, The (In)hospitable World. ⁠

Watch AFA’s Kay Wee in conversation with their guest curator Kiu-wai Chu on the modern impact of climate fiction — from mainstream titles like The Day After Tomorrow and Snowpiercer to the deluge of documentary and arthouse fare — and putting together the programme.
