Videocittà.Shirin Neshat. Looking for Oum Kulthum
MAXXI Auditorium – admission free subject to availability of places
A series of events within the ambit of the video art programme
The artapes series of screenings presents three Videocittà events, the project launched by ANICA and associated with the theme of film and the audio-visual idiom in Rome, a cultural programme of over 60 events aiming at adding a new chapter to the history of what has always been a significant centre of the seventh art. An innovative way of looking at film and the audio-visual genres, allowing them to establish dialogues with new creative, artistic and technological forms of expression and introducing Rome and Italy to a complex and extremely competitive international scene.
Winner of a Golden Lion at the 1999 Venice Biennale and a Silver Lion at the 2009 Film Festival with his first cinematographic work, the visual artist Shirin Neshat returns to explore the process of creating an artistic feature-length film with an unconventional biopic on the life of Oum Kulthum, the legendary Egyptian singer whose music and extraordinary personality continues to be impressed on the hearts and minds of millions of inhabitants of the Middle East. By way of a vast range of media, the artist reflects on the broad spectrum in which female voices and visions seek to be heard in a society dominated by men.
The screening will be introduced by a talk.
