Call for papers, ‘Reframing the Archive: The Reuse of Film and Photographic Images in Postcolonial Southeast Asia’, 22-23 June 2017, SOAS University, London

We are inviting submissions for  ‘Reframing the Archive: The Reuse of Film and Photographic Images in Postcolonial Southeast Asia’, 22-23 June 2017, SOAS University, London.

Deadline for abstracts: 17th February 2017

In recent years, the decision to engage with colonial and postcolonial archives has become increasingly commonplace within Southeast Asian film, photography and visual culture. Whilst this renewed interest in archival materials has resulted in an increased awareness of the complexities of lens-based media, it has also allowed practitioners to challenge both the dominant narratives of colonialism and their neo- and postcolonial legacies. In the case of Cambodia and its diasporas, this archival impulse – and its accompanying modes of (re-) appropriation – is exemplified by films such as Rithy Panh’s La France est notre patrie [‘France is our Homeland’] and Davy Chou’s Golden Slumbers. Whereas the former offers an insight into the hypocrisies of French colonial rule, the latter takes its lead from the development of twentieth century Cambodian cinema. Yet despite differing in their aims and emphases, these projects share a number of common characteristics – namely, a desire to foreground the importance of preserving and revisiting archival materials: two imperatives which have acquired a particular significance in the aftermath of the Khmer Rouge regime.

Taking its lead from these recent developments, this symposium will explore the ways in which colonial and postcolonial film and photographic archives have been rearticulated within a range of Southeast Asian political and aesthetic contexts. How have artists and filmmakers sought to subvert existing power relations through the use of colonial images? To what extent have archival materials and technologies allowed for an investigation into the emancipatory potential of the lens? How have these techniques been utilised by diasporic populations? Though preference will be given to submissions which focus on Southeast Asia, we also welcome papers that draw comparisons with other postcolonial contexts. Possible lines of enquiry include:

  • The political and aesthetic implications of re-situating images
  • Hindu-Buddhist aesthetic conventions and their use/subversion in colonial and postcolonial lens-based practices
  • The ethics, politics and artistic innovations of documentary work
  • Contemporary artistic practices which explore the themes of space, place and home
  • The return of European filmmakers and photographers to the postcolony

The symposium will be accompanied by screenings of two feature-length films by Cambodian filmmakers and a series of short films by emerging filmmakers from Southeast Asia. This programme, we believe, will provide a further opportunity to address the themes raised by the symposium.

The conference and screening programme are organised by Dr Joanna Wolfarth, Dr Fiona Allen, and Annie Jael Kwan, independent curator, The Asia Projector.

To submit a paper, please send paper titles, abstracts of c. 500 words and a 2-page CV to reframingthearchive@gmail.com

Le Sommeil d’or, un film franco-cambodgien

Film documentaire franco-cambodgien de Davy Chou (1 h 40).

Le cinéma cambodgien, né en 1960, a vu son irrésistible ascension stoppée brutalement en 1975 par l’arrivée au pouvoir des Khmers Rouges. La plupart des films ont disparu, les acteurs été tués et les salles de cinéma été transformées en restaurants ou karaokés. Le sommeil d’or filme la parole de quelques survivants et tente de réveiller l’esprit de ce cinéma oublié. (suite…)
