Asian Panorama
Asia is the largest, most populous and most densely inhabited continent of the planet. The variety of its ethnic composition is reflected in the diverse cinema of this region, and, as tradition dictates, we are bringing you the most interesting films of its current production in the Asian Panorama section. Lebanon is represented in the selection by Amin Dora's Ghadi, which depicts the difficult topic of social intolerance and the struggle against it utilising gentle humour. Dora's film was Lebanon’s official entry into last year's Oscar competition for the Best Foreign Language Film.
Two equally interesting films represent Vietnamese cinema. 2030 is an unusual sci-fi that depicts a Vietnam destroyed by an ecological catastrophe, yet the story also relates to the ageless topic of love and revenge. The exotic Flapping in the Middle of Nowhere tells an original story about a girl whose unwanted pregnancy forced her into prostitution. A Chinese drama, Blind Massage, offers a uniquely authentic insight into the life of the visually impaired, conveyed by a sophisticated use of film approaches. Jamshid Mahmoudi's debut, A Few Cubic Metres of Love, focuses on the forbidden love between an Iranian man and an Afghan woman in a poor neighbourhood of Tehran, where the lovers must meet in an abandoned container. The film was Afhanistan's entry for this year's Oscar for the Best Foreign language Film.
Apart from films solely in Asian production, this year's Asian Panorama offers also many co-production films. An adaptation of Francois Bizot's autobiographical novel was directed by Regis Wargnier (Indochine, 1992) and made in a co-production of Cambodia and France, describing Bizot's imprisonment by the Khmer Rouge during his research in Cambodia. Political opinions become the source of quarrels in the unconventional love story of a young woman and an older man against the backdrop of the Iranian Green Revolution in Red Rose, the clash of cultures, on the other hand, is the basis of love and misunderstanding in the story of the passionate affair of a young Belgian girl and a Japanese man in Tokyo Fiancée.
