South and South-East Asia Documentary Film Research Website
I recently had the opportunity to be interviewed by Dr. Camille Deprez about my father, Documentary Pioneer James Beveridge. Dr. Deprez is leading a research programme that “will explore the field of South and South-East Asia documentary film (including Hong Kong/Macau) as a historical and contemporary phenomenon. This area is currently significantly under-researched, and it is hoped that this research programme will make a contribution to the advancement of academic knowledge in this field. The research programme will involve academics and film-makers in the Asian region and beyond, and will also serve the important function of drawing together all major academic figures and practitioners associated with the study and practice of documentary film in the South and South-East Asian region. It is intended that this research programme will create and foster a forum for long-term association and collaboration.
This website and research programme is supported by the Academy of Film, School of Communication, Hong Kong Baptist University; and by the Research Grants Council of Hong Kong.
Dr. Deprez contacted me after watching the film I made with Beevision partner Paul Hart about my father entitled “The Idealist – James Beveridge, Film Guru“.
