[Cork] Our Souls are Palestinian – selection of short films with Q&A (Cork Film Festival)
Saturday 15th November | 14.00 | Free and Unticketed | Crawford Art Gallery
This programme of short artist’s film works looks at Palestine from various perspectives – external, embedded and provocative. Each of the filmmakers go beyond mainstream media representations of Palestine to interrogate the emotional and political landscape through uncanny juxtaposition of image and text. This screening will be followed by a panel discussion about film media and the current situation in Palestine including Laurence Davis (Dept of Government UCC), Rola Abu Zeid O’Neill (Dept of Sociology UCC), Harry Browne (School of Media DIT). Curated and chaired by artist/filmmaker Aoife Desmond.

Dirty Pictures (Hotel Diaries #7)

The project of a 3D [stereoscopic] film by Armin Linke and Francesco Mattuzzi, completed with the visual effects created by Francesco Siddi, refers to the 19th century invention of the stereoscopic technology, that was developed exactly for archaeological and military purposes.
