CNN International to celebrate best of Asia Pacific films with two documentaries

CNN International will air the outstanding works of filmmakers from across more than 70 nations in the Asia Pacific region in the month of November, on the international news network. The works will be celebrated in two documentaries produced in association with CNN International. The two hour-long programmes include interviews with some of the most respected names in contemporary film.

The first documentary ‘Scene By Scene – Films of Asia Pacific’ looks at the people behind the films. The second, ‘Scene By Scene – Best Films of Asia Pacific’ includes the inaugural Asia Pacific Screen Awards Ceremony on Australia’s Gold Coast.

The documentaries feature luminaries from the region including Hong Kong’s John Woo on the sets of his new film ‘The Battle of Red Cliff’, Egyptian screen idol Omar Sharif, Chinese director Chen Kaige, Indonesia’s foremost director Garin Nugroho, Indian superstar and Asia Pacific Screen Awards (APSA) International Jury President Shabana Azmi, co-founder of Japan’s legendary anime house studio Ghibli Mamuro Oshii, and director of the Korean blockbuster ‘The Host’, Bong Joon-Ho.

The interviews in the programmes are interspersed with footages from film studios, film festivals and film sets spanning Cairo, Istanbul, Ho Chi Minh City, Seoul, Tokyo, Singapore, New Zealand, Bhutan and Beijing.

David Lindsay, Executive Producer of ‘Scene By Scene’ documentaries, CNN, said, “From high in the Himalayan mountains, the two ‘Scene By Scene’ documentaries weave their way through the subcontinent, Central Asia and the Middle East, then on to North and South-East Asia, and Australasia. These will be a landmark moment for Asia Pacific film and a wonderful opportunity for our viewers to see the extraordinary talent in the region.”

“The programmes are shaping up as compelling television, reflecting issues of cultural, social and political diversity, and they will showcase the region’s films and filmmakers to an unparalleled global audience,” said Des Power, Chairman, APSA.
