PANSODAN DOCS & TALKS SCREENS Welcome to Karenni!, A FILM FROM 1994 ABOUT THE `STORY OF KARENNI`
23 February 2015, 16:00

Invitation for February 25, 2015 - 6.30 p.m.

Invitation for February 25, 2015 – 6.30 p.m.

Pansodan Scene, the ‘sister space’ of Pansodan Gallery started a new series of events at the end of November 2014 named Docs & Talks. The idea is to screen documentary films that are rare to see or have never been screened before in Myanmar and to allow an exchange of thoughts after the film between the audience and the filmmaker or some experts of the fields / issues raised by the film.

The next screening taking place on Wednesday 25 February from 6.30 p.m. will show a now `historical` documentary made in 1994 by Margriet Jansen: Welcome to Karenni.

The director, Margriet Jansen was working at the University of Amsterdam in the department of visual anthropology in 1993 when she got involved through of her colleague in the project of making a film `telling the story of the Karenni people`.

`Based on our anthropological background, our focus was to show the way tradition was maintained in the refugee camps. We choose to follow the three days New Year ritual as an example. Because we focused our film completely on the Karenni and their story, the film’s perspective is very clear. Basically it has become a strong document for the Karenni people, their history and the long way they had to go. The film doesn’t give an answer to the complex situation of Myanmar, but is exemplary for the impact of political conflicts on the lives of ordinary people,` mentions Ms Jansen about the focus of the film.

The film has been screened on several festivals world-wide, but it`s its first time in Yangon. Due to the historical perspective it holds, it is a rare opportunity to see the film 21 years after its making. As usual, the screening will be followed by a `Q& A` session with experts on the field.

Entrance is free, doors open at 6.30 p.m. for the screening – make sure you have a seat!

Length: 40 minutes, subtitles in English

Venue: Pansodan Scene, 144 Pansodan Street, 2nd Floor (entrance of the building in front of the Ganesh Temple), Kyauktada Township, Yangon

Tun Win Nyein`s work (detail)

This month Pansuriya highlights two fresh works from Tun Win Nyein and Myo Nyunt Khin. Both paintings are quite specific regarding their topics. Tun Win Nyein chose to depict in a puritain way the portrait of one of General Aung San`s teachers. The unusual technique, with a background holding a green that will certainly remind the spectator of the very typical walls of Yangon-buildings, combines virtuose, hard-edged brushstokes with collage technique embedding different documents in the work. Meanwhile, Myo Nyunt Khin`s painting resembles to an optical game depicting numerous black and white owls. The yellowish Shan drum in the foreground, combined with the infinite number of eyes has quite a hypnotic impact on the viewer! Be the one who dares entering the lucky world of the owls!
