Poetic Justice: Personalising Politics on Screen presents a series of contemporary fictional films from Southeast Asia and a panel discussion featuring the filmmakers of the works. Taking the notion of “poetic justice” as a point of departure, the session will take an interest in the intersections between fictional filmmaking and real-life political events in national histories.

A film director and her muse who was a student activist in the 1970s, a waitress who keeps changing jobs, an actor and an actress, all live loosely connected to each other by almost invisible threads. The narrative sheds its skin several times to reveal layer upon layer of the complexities that make up the characters’ lives.
