[London] Opening March 4th, 2011: Experimentation in Arab Cinema @ Tate Modern

Friday 4 March – Sunday 27 March 2011
Mapping Subjectivity: Experimentation in Arab Cinema from the 1960s to Now

@ Tate Modern Gallery of Modern Art London

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.
