Three incredible documentaries from Asia to mark the Leiden Asia Week! Multiple award-winning films that explore struggle, sacrifice and activism.



The territorial dispute between Japan and Korea over the ownership of the Dokdo/Takeshima islets is not limited to state-to-state relations. In both countries there are citizens' groups actively engaged in protesting, lobbying and educating the public. This Island is Ours follows a Korean kindergarten caretaker with a background in student activism and a recently widowed Japanese housewife as they campaign tirelessly for the sovereignty of the tiny islets that are currently controlled by Korea, but also claimed by Japan. This film creates a rare insight into the lives of the two activists on both sides by presenting their parallel experiences from a neutral point of view.
