Workshop Category: In Conversation


Angeli BAYANI, Ladya Cheryl and YEO Yann Yann are established actors of the same generation in their respective countries, involved in film productions with various auteurs. With roots in independent filmmaking, how have they navigated their careers domestically and internationally as actors from Southeast Asia?

Indonesian director Edwin and Singaporean director YEO Siew Hua are the last two Golden Leopard recipients out of only three Southeast Asian winners in the whole history of the Locarno Film Festival. Building on the momentum of their recent wins, they will be in conversation to reflect on Edwin’s career and to share their aspirations for our region’s cinema.
