Curated by Gertjan Zuilhof, Unlocked is a digital exhibition featuring the works of 7 Southeast Asian filmmakers: The Maw Naing (Myanmar), Mouly Surya (Indonesia), Jet Leyco (Philippines), Sivaroj Karn Kongsakul (Thailand), Amanda Nell Eu (Malaysia), Dain Said (Malaysia), and Tan Chui Mui (Malaysia). Ruminating on ideas of distance, displacement, and the mechanisms of coping with prolonged seclusion, Unlocked proposes a glimpse into the lives and practices of cosmopolitan artists who are forced into isolation as a result of the ongoing pandemic that disrupted innumerable events, programmes, and projects; impacting the arts and cinema at an extraordinary scale and intensity.
