THE LAST REFUGE: FOOD STORIES FROM MYANMAR TO COFFS HARBOUR / 25 MIN

This documentary depicts the food stories of people from Myanmar, now residing in the regional town of Coffs Harbour, Australia. More than 300 people from Myanmar have settled in Coffs Harbour. Some of these settlers have spent more than 20 years in refugee camps. They have fled their homeland with little more than their memories and their stories. But these memories allow their traditions to continue.


Mandy Hughes is currently a PhD student of Anthropology at Southern Cross University, Australia. She has experience working in community, international development, education and media and NOG. This is her first independently produced documentary and this project was made in collaboration with the Myanmar community Coffs Harbour.

UNDER THE PALACE WALL / 55 MIN

UNDER THE PALACE WALL From the 16th century the Indian village of Delwara in southern Rajastan was ruled as a principality of the kingdom of Mewar. Its palace, which overlooks the village, is now a luxury hotel – a world remote from the daily life of villagers. Following off from his film SchoolScapes, which was inspired by the early cinema of Lumiere, David MacDougall here employs a series of precisely observed scenes to explore Delwara´s local primary school as a part of contemporary village life – a life that continues „under the palace wall“.
David MacDougall is an ethnographic filmmaker and writer on cinema. He has filmed in East Africa (The Jie films and „Turkana Conversation“ trilogy), Australia, and India. In 2005 he filmed at a shelter for homeless children in New Delhi, producing Gandhi´s Children. MacDougall  writes regulary on cinema and is the author of Transcultural Cinema and The Corporeal Image: Film, Ethnography , and the Sense. He is presently Adjunct Professor at the Australian National University, where he is directing the project „Childhood and Modernity: Indian Children´s Perspectives“.
