Action in Asia: A documentary film project about social movements in East and South East Asia
Initially, this project was started through the anti-G8 summit protests in Japan. In autumn 2007, two people from Germany traveled Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, the Philippines, and Hong Kong to report about the anti-G8 protest movement in Germany leading up to the summit protests in Heiligendamm, Germany, in 2007. During the preparation for this journey it became clear that sadly not much of political issues in Asia are known to people in other regions of the globe. So interviews were shot with people involved in diverse political and social movements. More recently, shot interviews also feature the antinuclear movement in Japan.
