I am now at the scene of a small film festival that introduces East Asian culture and arts in Sweden. Listen to the messages that Globala Tanter gives to the Swedish mainstream society.
A small salong in Hagabion is full seated.
The fun explanation of an Asian family culture in the Taiwanese movie brings smiles in the audience.
It is the scene of the ‘Global Tanter Film Festival’ which tells stories about the Asian culture to Sweden through films.
[Grundström / audience: The choice of film was very good, and it was a wonderfully prepared film festival. Everything was good. It is really good to be able to come and experience this film festival directly.]
This festival has been sponsored by the City of Gothenburg and ABF film and Media for two years.
The artist’s group ’Globala Tanter’ has created a film festival and has been operating so far.
Six years ago, some Asian students who met at Valand Academy, Gothenburg got together.
As people who have roots in Asia, living in Sweden, we would like to create discussions to the local society through films and arts.
[Finn Chung / ’Globala Tanter’ member: The swedish mainstream society seems to have a fixed image, stereotypes about Asians. About who we are and what we do. I think breaking the image is the most important thing. To do that, you have to give them an opportunity to show that there are various Asian cultures.]
Globala Tanter to break up the fixed image of Asia and generate meetings and talks in-between..
We support their challenge.
