In the Gallery, October 2014: A Dream Surely Vanishing
More details here
A Dream Surely Vanishing is an on-going, joint photo documentary project. Its narrative vehicle is Burma's Irrawaddy River, as it flows past a stunning land and people of vast kindness being eroded by ill- planned economic development. Purposefully aimed away from the popular topics of ethnic armies, religious violence and drug abuse, this project seeks to connect its audience with the underrepresented people of Burma and the issues they face, while at the same time painting a picture of a breathtaking land being heralded as one of Asia's last economic frontiers.

Contemporary World Film Series: Danish Film 'The Hunt'
The screening of the Danish film 'The Hunt' had the entire audience tense and glued to their seats. The story of a man falsely indicted on
a child molestation charge, starred famous Danish actor Mads Mikkelson in a rivetting role, which won him the Best Actor Award at the
prestigious Cannes Film Festival.
Danish Ambassador HE Mikael Hemniti Winther said it was one of the most intense films he'd seen and everyone agreed with him.
While the film was strong and intense, the cool Carlsberg beer and fabulous canapes with Danish salami, salmon, liver pate, skagen toast,
provided by the Danish Embassy, kept a great balance.
