Documentary projection

Philippe Genois-Lefrançois

In 2016, the Canada Research Chair in Sustainable Urbanization in Global South joined the Third World Studies Center (TWSC) of the University of the Philippines Diliman and the Department of Political Science of the University of Montreal to support the production of student documentaries on the struggles of people living on the margins of Southeast Asian societies in contexts of rapid development. 

Wednesday, November 8 at 16:30, we invite you to the amphitheater 3110 of the Faculty of environmental design for the projection of two documentaries produced this summer by students of UdeM and UP Diliman: 

"Leaving Bodeng" documents the last days of the evicted occupants of the iconic "White Building" in downtown Phnom Penh (Cambodia). 

"Pag-baylo: Losing the Land to Solar Farms" sheds light on the skillful maneuvers of large Filipino landowners to convert large tracts of agricultural land into solar farms that should have been redistributed to the farmers. 

Please note that both documentaries are subtitled in English.

An open forum with the filmmakers of the two films presented will follow the screening. The screening is free and open to the public.
