Dr Anandi Ramamurthy hosts screening and director Q&A of ‘Off Frame Aka Revolution Until Victory’ with director Mohanad Yaqubi 11/12 July 2017
As part of her research for the AHRC funded Creative Interruptions project, Dr Anandi Ramamurthy (Reader in Post-Colonial Cultures) will conduct Q&As with director Mohanand Yaqubi following the screenings of ‘Off Frame Aka Revolution Until Victory’.
Off Frame Aka Revolution Until Victory explores the Palestinian people’s struggle to represent themselves. By using archival material from the Palestine Film Unit, founded in the 1960s to document the Palestinian revolution, the film explores popular representations of Palestine and the work of revolutionary film makers who transformed the image of the Palestinian from refugee to freedom fighter. The film borrows shots and sequences from the few PLO films that remain extant, intersecting with footage produced by international filmmakers who collaborated with the Palestinian revolution from Syria, Italy, UK, Lebanon, France, Germany and Argentina. It presents an historical narrative of struggle that asks us to interrogate both the images in front of the camera and as well as those ‘off frame’.
The screenings are supported by Sheffield Hallam University, Arts and Humanities Research Council, Sheffield Palestine Cultural exchange, Cinema Palestino Manchester.
