About this event

This ASIAN FILM SERIES is an initiative by scholarship holders of Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS), led by Pisen Sou, Global Communications student (MA) at the University of Erfurt. It is supported by the Asia-Pacific Department of KAS. Connecting communities via visual stories is a powerful way to build an understanding of societies in their different cultural, societal and historical settings. Besides watching the films together, the evenings will also be a space for interaction and discussion facilitated by the hosts. On the part of C*SPACE Annette Heimann, previously managing director of the Asia Berlin Forum e.V., will act as a co-host. As a highlight to rough off the series, we are delighted to welcome the Taiwanese Film Festival again at the Pop-Up Teahouse at the end of the series.
