Film Screening of Contemporary Southeast Asian Artist: Khvay Samnang

East Window partners with University of Colorado, Boulder to present a series of film screenings of contemporary Southeast Asian Artists. In the film being screened on the 10th of March, Khvay’s work critically interrogates the multidimensional character of rituals and politics; exposing the humanitarian and ecological impacts of globalization and its concomitant links to the waves of colonialism and migration which continually demarcate and define the spaces and temporalities of Southeast Asia. Popil develops a complex choreography based around the symbolism of the dragon; which both plays towards Euro-America’s tendency to employ the motif as a blanket symbol for much of East/Southeast Asia, as well as allows for an examination of the manner in which such iconography speaks towards a specifically Chinese or Cambodian mode of identity formation.
