Visual Documentary Project 2017 Winners

And we are happy to announce that out of these works that explored the theme "Urban Life in Southeast Asia," the 5 below have been selected for the screening in Kyoto and Tokyo this December.
We will be inviting the directors and team members of these 5 documentaries to Japan for a talk and discussion with commentators.
