Hablamos de proyectos artísticos, pero ¿qué es eso? Hay muchas manifestaciones en torno al arte y, a veces, los límites, generan confusión en conceptos difíciles de abordar. Pero aún así, no todo vale. ¿Por qué sí o por qué no? ¿Quién decide cuando un proyecto es válido y en base a qué? ¿Para quién tiene interés? ¿Por qué se gesta esa necesidad? ¿Qué metodologías se llevan a cabo en estas cuestiones? ¿Quién es quién en todo esto? Y tú, ¿qué te cuentas?

Mapping Subjectivity

Experimentation in Arab Cinema from the 1960s to Now

This programme maps the intangible connections within the largely unknown heritage of personal, artistic and experimental cinema from the Arab world. Ranging from acclaimed masterworks to the rare and recently rediscovered, this series showcases inspiring films from Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine and Syria. During the 1960s, galvanised by a broader global vanguard of counter-cultural experimentation in poetry, literature and theatre, filmmakers began to craft a language and form that broke away from established conventions and commercial considerations, ultimately clearing the ground for boldly subjective cinematic expressions. Much of the inventive, daring and formally challenging filmmaking at work today in the Arab world has its roots—both acknowledged and not—in this pioneering drive to experiment with narrative, representation and the production of images.
