BELGIUM’S CRIMES IN CONGO AND CAMBODIAN FEATURE WITH TITH KANITHA
4PM: DOCU - In 1885, King Leopold II of Belgium gained a vast area in central Africa as his personal possession. His greed and the system of forced labor he imposed there prompted the first human rights movement ever. This is examined in KING LEOPOLD’S GHOSTS (2006, 107 min). 7PM: CAMBODIAN DRAMA - TURN LEFT TURN RIGHT (2016, 68 min) is produced by Anti-Archive, a collective of young Asian American/Asian European filmmakers. The feature directorial debut by Korean-US filmmaker Douglas Seok boast Cambodian contemporary artist Kanitha Tith in the leading role. Accompanied by the beats of 1960‘s Cambodian pop songs, it is a funky tale of hope, love and dreams.
