The Body Undone Film Screening: "Nakorn-Sawan"

April 9, 21 a.m. - April 10, 21 a.m.

 The Body Undone: In Conversation with Loss is a program of film screenings and discussions organized by Sana Rizvi for Oyoun's EMBODIED ARTS FESTIVAL. The selected films look at various kinds of loss held by different bodies - with a focus on storytelling from new voices. Using film, an embodied memory in itself, an invitation is made to reflect on the question: can we discover new possibilities in the workings of loss and grief by allowing spaces for these feelings to be held and acknowledged in an embodied way?

Each film is available for a selected timeframe during Oyoun's EMBODIED ARTS FESTIVAL.

There is a Q&A event happening with the film's director on April 11th at 16:00, see here for details.
