The Southeast Asia Movie Theater Project is proud to announce its first ever exhibition in North America. The more precise location is south Philadelphia - my residence when not documenting old movie theaters in Southeast Asia - at the Southeast by Southeast Community Center - 1927 S. 7th Street. It opens tomorrow, Saturday September 21st.
Philadelphia's Mural Arts Program has graciously sponsored this display of images in conjunction with photographs taken by members of the city's recently arrived Burmese and Nepali refugee community. The latter details the experience of this nascent community from refugee camps in Asia to row-house South Philadelphia.
If you're in the Philadelphia area, please come join us for a night of fun and conversation.
