The Visual Documentary Project 2014 is organized by Center for Southeast Asian Studies, Kyoto University.
5 documentaries from Southeast Asia are selected and will be screen in Kyoto and Tokyo in January 2015.
My Granpa’s Route has Forever been Blocked” has been selected to be screened in this program.
If you are in Kyoto or Tokyo during that time, please feel free to join.
The documentaries reflect on people and nature in Southeast Asia.
 From the sky to the mountains, forests to mangroves, fields to orchards and animals to insects,
what is the relationship between people and nature in Southeast Asia?
How do people connect with their environments? In what ways do they think about,
feel, touch, speak and share their surroundings in their societies, and through their cultures?
