The Political Aesthetic: Screening 3 | Aftermaths of Displacement

Please Note: RSVPing does not guarantee a specific seat at the screening. Seats will be held until 6:30PM at which point we will welcome attendees on a first come first serve basis. In the event you are no longer to attend, please be sure to cancel your ticket(s).


The three short films featured in this program revisit, each in a different location, aftermaths of displacement rendered in/visible in the histories of built environment, urban spaces, and landscapes to invoke and animate lost and untold voices, stories, and events.


Galb'Echaouf (2021), Abdessamad El Montassir, 18’

While investigating events that profoundly altered the landscape of the Western Sahara, El Montassir found himself faced with a silent environment, haunted by its complex socio-political history. As an alternative to human witnesses, he decided to focus on the organic life that inhabits the desert to reconstruct what people have forgotten.


Tellurian Drama (2020), Riar Rizaldi, 26’

May 5th, 1923. The Dutch East Indies government celebrated the opening of a new radio station in West Java. It was called Radio Malabar. In March 2020, the local Indonesian government plans to reactivate the station as a historical site and tourist attraction. Tellurian Drama imagines what would have happened in between: the vital role of mountain in history; colonial ruins as an apparatus for geoengineering technology; and the invisible power of indigenous ancestral. Narrated based on the forgotten text written by a prominent pseudo-anthropologist Drs. Munarwan, Tellurian Drama problematizes the notion of decolonisation, geocentric technology, and historicity of communication.


The Secret Garden (2023), Nour Ouayda, 27'

The inhabitants of a city awake one morning to find that never-before-seen trees, plants, and flowers suddenly erupted throughout the streets and in the squares. Strange and mysterious events start taking place as Camelia and Nahla investigate the origins of these new and peculiar creatures.


The screening will be followed by a discussion with filmmaker and archivist Chant Partamian and film scholar and programmer Sima Kokotović, moderated by Sanaz Sohrabi and Farah Atoui.

Otherwise please consider donating directly to this or other medical aid organizations (including Palestine Children's Relief Fund, Medical Aid for Palestinians, Palestinian Medical Aid Relief Society) whether you are attending or not.
