artapes. Home Beirut Sounding the Neighbors

#Artapes #HomeBeirut

video gallery – free entrance for all from Tuesday to Friday and every first Sunday of the month
curated by Hou Hanru and Giulia Ferracci

On the occasion of Home Beirut Sounding the Neighbors – the exhibition aimed at analysing important phenomena of contemporary society through the city of Beirut – artapes, the screening programme carried out in cooperation with In Between Art Film, will devote its fourth event to the presentation of videos made by some of the most interesting artists of the international scene.

By use of screenings and debates with directors, as well as introductions by critics, curators, and experts, the festival encourages spectators to better know the story of cinema and the role of the media in Beirut. Generally speaking, it dwells upon the great themes that are currently debated in our society: memory, borders, individual freedom, conflict and reconciliation, and joy as a form of resilience. The project includes retrospectives devoted to the individual authors and a thematic focus, conceived as a complex, stratified portrait of the city.
