Photographer, filmmaker, storyteller, reporter, author. The documentarians of VII have long embraced these multiple roles in this transmedia age, with some now using film as their main medium. Singaporean photographer Sim Chi Yin has curated an evening of VII’s international award-winning film work. She will screen her short film “Dying To Breathe” on China’s gold miners and pieces by fellow VII members Ed Kashi, Tomas van Houtryve, Jessica Dimmock and Christopher Morris, on stories ranging from Syrian refugees to the use of drones in warfare, pollution in the United States and the US elections.
Venue address: Hin Bus Depot : 31, Jalan Gurdwara, George Town, 10300 George Town, Pulau Pinang, Malaysia
