> DESCRIPTION

This season of artists’ film explores collective memory and personal and political histories. Ben Hagari’s Invert (2010) is an homage to celluloid film in which we see the world inverted in the colours of the photographic negative, while Sefer Memisoglu’s film Breeze (2011) reflects the artist’s interest in the power of iconic documentary images and new digital media.

Nguyen Trinh Thi’s Song to the Front (2011–12) abstracts a feature-length 1970s Vietnamese propaganda film and its aesthetic and political elements into a 5-minute vignette. Finally, re-examining historical perspective, Karim Debbagh’s 2006 film Creating a Legend, builds a portrait of the writer Paul Bowles through first hand accounts of his Moroccan companions.

 

Artists’ Film International showcases artists working with film, video and animation, selected by 12 partner organisations around the world. Ben Hagari is selected by the New Media Centre, Haifa, Israel; Sefer Memisoglu by Istanbul Modern, Istanbul, Turkey; Nguyen Trinh Thi by San Art, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and Karim Debbagh by Cinemathèque de Tanger, Tangier, Morocco.
