The Asia Film Series is part of the “Pop-Up Teahouse Berlin” cultural project that was initiated by C*SPACE in 2021with intention to co-create a space for the Asian/Berlin community and anyone else interested in a deeper understanding between cultures, and in East-West encounters. As much as the Teahouse is a place to rest and relax, it is a social space to rethink and discuss ideas, as well as a stage for the arts ranging from dance, literature, theater to film screening.
Thanks to support from Stiftung Mercator and KAS-Konrad Adenauer Stiftung most of the programs are free of charge. C*SPACE Berlin is a co-working, creative and project space run by C-SPACE Berlin gGmbH – social enterprise.
