The Color Curtain Project Inaugural Dinner

In April 1955, twenty-nine Asian and African countries gathered in Bandung, Indonesia to take stock of the geopolitical dynamics at the time, and to forge a new coalition denouncing racism, colonialism, and nuclear war.

To honor and reflect on the intricate connections between past and present, NY- and DC-based scholars and artists began The Color Curtain Project, a dinner party and art book that convene individuals of African- and Asian-American identities for constructive dialogue. Named after Richard Wright’s reporting on the Bandung Conference, The Color Curtain Project encourages participants to break bread and candidly discuss political and social justice challenges that entwine the contemporary Afro-Asian-American experience.

Film Screening: A Cambodian Spring

A Cambodian Spring is a intimate and unique portrait of three people caught up in the chaotic and often violent development that is shaping modern-day Cambodia. Shot over 6 years, the film charts the growing wave of land-rights protests that led to the "Cambodian Spring" and the tragic events that followed. This film is about the complexities - both political and personal, of fighting for what you believe in. Directed by award-winning filmmaker, Chris Kelly, 'A Cambodian Spring' won the Special Jury Prize for International Feature Documentary at Hot Docs 2017.

Following the film, will be a discussion with the former Executive Editor of The Cambodia Daily, Douglas Gillison, about the intersection of press freedom and global politics. The Cambodia Daily published its final issue on September 4, 2017, announcing its immediate closure as a result of a long battle with the Cambodian government over a US$6 million dollar tax bill, disputed as politically motivated.

Hosted by Hometown X Eaton Workshop. Light refreshments provided by Kintsugi.
