CINEMA OF THE PEASANTS (CNN/ A Song Collective)
Con Nha Ngheo (CNN) Cinema, roughly translated as PEASANTS CINEMA, is a community moving-image program curated by independent filmmaker Mai Huyen Chi. Built around screenings, talks, workshops, and mentoring activities, CNN Cinema (Peasants Cinema) promotes the work, the practice, and the moving-image artists across the genres from fiction and non-fiction narrative films to other non-narrative forms of experimental films and video arts.
Having its eyes on authentic and accessible filmmaking, CNN aims to nurture a space and community for grassroot independent filmmaking, one that is freed from budget, reputational, aesthetical and political restraints - at least in the mindset.
