Documentary Flim《Ops Gading》《象牙行动》 by Leerang Bato

Operasi Gading by Malaysian government which aim to halt illegal farming turned out to be a food destruction operation and wiping out small farmers in Cameron Highland without mercy.
Since November 2014 Enforcement units were destroying small scale vegetable farms in Cameron Highlands and preventing farmers from continue farming.
This documentary is voices of the affected farmers.

简介:
以取缔非法耕地及非法外劳为名的《象牙行动》,将金马仑高原上的许多经营了多年甚至几代人的耕作地充公,铲平。这些每天为我们提供新鲜蔬果鲜花的农耕地,就是导致金马仑发生闪电水灾的祸首?还是过度发展旅游业才是背后的主因?而为何这些经营了几代人的农民,几乎都是耕者会无地呢?
人民记录电影工作室的周泽南深入金马仑,为大家解剖事件的始末,给予农民说活权利。

放映后导演将进行分享

Artstic Strategies to shape the City Body


about the exhibition

Regina Pemsl develops artistic strategies that stimulate the perception of the human body to the city. Through practical work, she invites the audience to engage and interact with each other as well as to shape their own living environment.
Various visual installations in collaboration with Lostgens Contemporary Arts Space will be presented as a result of her three-month Artist-Residency Project in Kuala Lumpur with the invitation of the Goethe-Institut Malaysia. These installations include:
“My Little Kingdom”- a walk followed by a Batik session.
“Jalan Panggung Hanging Gardens” - a visual stimulus to create more green in the city.
“Vanish”- a film portrait
“Cukup – Chinese character – Enough” - an installation made together with workshop-participants.
 

Regina Pemsl entwickelt künstlerische Strategien, die die Wahrnehmung des eigenen Körpers in der Stadt anregen. Sie lädt ein, über praktisches Arbeiten sowohl Kontakte zu knüpfen, als auch die eigene Lebensumwelt zu gestalten.
In Lostgens und der Umgebung werden Beispiele für Kooperationen vorgestellt, die in einem dreimonatigen Arbeitsaufenthalt auf Einladung des Goethe Instituts in KL entstanden sind, wie “My little Kingdom“ - ein Spaziergang mit anschließender Batik -Praxis, „Jalan Panggung Hanging Gardens“ – ein Impuls für mehr Grün in der Stadt, „vanish“ – ein Filmporträt und „cukup – enough – chinesisches Zeichen“, eine Installation mit Publikumsbeteiligung.
