Asian artistry takes to the screen with APT7 Cinema

Take a glimpse at the cinematic creations made at the hand of David Lynch or Martin Scorsese and you’ll understand why cinema is considered an art form. Maestros of the media abound in every country and it is those who hail from Asia that are being celebrated currently at APT7 Cinema. As a part of the APT7 exhibition – which is a curation of creativity coming from Southeast Asia – will be the screening of two film programs that will act as an overview into the region’s cinema. Change: Paths Through 20 Years of Film is based around the motif of change, with works spanning social, political and aesthetic commentary, and celebrating 20 years of filmmaking from the Middle East to the Pacific. In the second program, Mountains and Waters: Chinese Animation Since the 1930s, the Australian Cinémathèque presents a landmark retrospective of Chinese animation, showing around 200 works of filmic genius for the masses to enjoy. On the public holiday on Monday, special screenings of Bedevil (1993), One Night The Moon (2001) and The Sapphires (2012) will be showing throughout the day.

@ GOMA, until April 14
