🎥Presenting… CINEMA IS RESISTANCE
A special evening screening of 2 short docs films around the theme of RESISTANCE.
Chris Marker’s SIXTH SIDE OF THE PENTAGON (1967)
Mai Masri’s FRONTIERS OF DREAMS AND FEARS (2001)
Chris Marker is well known for his radical documentary essays shedding light on the global politics of the 60s and 70s. In SIXTH SIDE OF THE PENTAGON, he documents first-hand the historic protest in Washington DC on 21 October 1967, when a 100,000-strong march called for an immediate end to the War in Vietnam.
In her poignant 2001 documentary, Mai Masri follows 2 Palestinian girls who are friends and penpals. Mona (13) lives in a refugee camp in Beirut and Manar (14) lives in an Israeli-controlled camp near Bethlehem. Hedged in by border controls and checkpoints, the girls are unable to move around freely. They eventually decide to meet at the South Lebanon border, despite the danger entailed.
In this time of global unrest and horrific injustice, both these films continue to resonate strongly. Join us as we voyage into the history of RESISTANCE in its many forms through the lens of cinema.
