{Un}told Stories: From the Arab World

{Un}told Stories From the Arab World: A scheduled series of films and discussions on current issues from the Middle East and North Africa region. Whilst the artists and video-makers come from different backgrounds and parts of the world - either local, Diaspora or Western - their documentaries, fictions and video installations all connect to the human condition in today’s complex geopolitical societies in Arab countries, where often there is no room for expression on issues that affect the rights of the people, and the answer is often a passive complicity within mass observers. More than ever, the storytelling sets every character as a passenger within crucial time and space. Whether from a war zone, a no man’s land or an abandoned building, each film sheds light on places and zones that witnessed or engendered a life-changing moment for the narrators and ultimately their protagonists too. Taking place 15 February-7 March, 2018 at the P21 Gallery, 21-27 Chalton Street, London NW1 1JD.
