In-Person Film Discussion Group led by Casey Asprooth-Jackson
As part of his residency at VSW this month, Casey Asprooth-Jackson will host three in-person screenings of films from Palestine, programmed by the Palestine Film Institute (PFI). The series begins with Arab Loutfi’s documentary study of militant women Tell Your Tale, Little Birds (2007) on March 15th, followed by Michel Khleifi’s influential Fertile Memory (1981) on March 22nd, and wraps up with Raed Andoni’s introspective Fix Me (2009) on March 30th.
All screenings start at 7pm in VSW’s auditorium at 31 Prince St. Tickets are free and limited to 10 viewers per screening, and can be reserved by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For those who would prefer to watch the films at home, they can be streamed for free at palestinefilminstitute.org, with a new film released every Wednesday at 10am through the Palestine Film Platform.
The Palestine Film Institute is the national body responsible for funding, preserving and promoting the cinema of Palestine. It seeks to support film productions from and for Palestine, through providing development and consultancy, increasing accessibility to funding, and connecting film talents and experts. The PFI is rooted in the tradition of committed cinema and the history of using independent film practice as a tool for social change.
