    Korean artist Do Ho Suh draws attention to the ways viewers occupy and inhabit public space. Interested in the malleability of space in both its physical and metaphorical manifestations, Suh constructs site-specific installations that question the boundaries of identity. His work explores the relation between individuality, collectivity, and anonymity (Miwon Kwon - The Other Otherness: The Art of Do Ho Suh). This film shows some of Suh's artworks displayed in the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, Japan. The exhibition was titled PERFECT HOME. * Executive Producer: Doho Suh Producer: Paul Choi Production Assistant: Hiromi Kurosawa, Kenzo Kodama Director, Cinematographer & Editor: Nils Clauss Steadicam Operator: Wonho Son Assistant Camera: Sungil Lee Graphic Design: In-ah Shin Music: “like caustic lights bending backwards” by Offthesky * List of exhibits in order of appearance: -- 348 West 22nd Street, New York, NY 10011, USA - Apt. a, Corridors and Staircases (Kanazawa Version, 2011-2012) -- Seoul Home / Seoul Home / Kanazawa Home (2002-2012) -- Wielandstr. 18, 12159, Berlin, Germany-3 Corridors (2012) -- Fallen Star - 1/5th Scale (2008-2012) -- Home within Home - 1/11th Scale Prototype (2009) All artworks are copyright protected by Do Ho Suh * www.nilsclauss.com www.kanazawa21.jp/en/ www.noise.offthesky.com

      Historians say that the Kaffirs of Sri Lanka started arriving from the eastern shores of Africa in the 1500s with the Portuguese, and later in more waves with the different colonisers of Sri Lanka. 'Kaffir culture' is a video portrait of one such community of Kaffirs and the struggle to keep their culture alive in the face of falling numbers. Written and produced by Kannan Arunasalam. Music by Ceylon Kaffir Manja, arranged by Jesse Hardman. Special thanks to Sweta Velpillay (on sound), Nethra Samarawickrema (for help with translations), Leah Worthington (background research) and Greg Kelly (Radio Netherlands).

                  Does each gesture really make a difference? Can music and dance be weapons of peace? Director Iara Lee embarked on a two-year, five-continent trek to find out. From MALI, where the music of Tuareg resistance rises from the desert, to BURMA, where monks acting in the tradition of Gandhi take on a dictatorship, moving on to BRAZIL, where musicians reach out to slum kids and transform guns into guitars, and ending in PALESTINIAN refugee camps in LEBANON, where photography, music, and film have given a voice to those rarely heard, CULTURES OF RESISTANCE explores how art and creativity can be the ammunition in the battle for peace and justice. Featuring: Medellín poets for peace, Capoeira masters from Brazil, Niger Delta militants, Iranian graffiti artists, women’s movement leaders in Rwanda, Lebanon’s refugee filmmakers, U.S. political pranksters, Argentina’s Madres de Plaza de Mayo, indigenous Kayapó activists from the Xingu, Israeli dissidents, hip-hop artists from Palestine, and many more...
