Perspectives Film Festival 2014

Displacement

Perspectives dedicated a closer look at the stories of those estranged from their communities, featuring films such as Cary Fukunaga’s Sin Nombre (2009) and R.W. Fassbinder’s Ali: Fear Eats the Soul (1974). The ancillary events focused on individuals who used art for social change, such as a seminar with local filmmaker Jasmine Ng, and an exclusive masterclass with Sooni Taraporevala, the screenwriter and on-set photographer for Salaam Bombay! (1988).
