Short films questioning the recent history of Arab countries through storytelling. Films are provided by Cinémathèque de Tanger as part of the Transeuropa Festival

About

Carte Blanche to the Cinémathèque de Tanger A selection of short films made before the revolutions that shook the Arab world in 2011 which question the recent history of countries like Lebanon, Tunisia and Morocco through storytelling. The programme also includes a debate with the Director Danielle Arbid, actor Khalid Abdalla (part of the Mosireen collective) and other speakers (TBC). Stories related to underground and political commitment, to terrorism, revolutions and civil wars, told by those who lived these realities and directed by filmmakers of the new generation. These stories remind us our present time, and, at the same time, enables us to reflect on the transmission of political and historical events. The 2011 revolutions have demonstrated the strength of social networks, were the individuals have became narrators and can relate the events through pictures, texts and personal publications, putting literally into question the traditional information mean: the media. The narrator has taken its place in the construction of history, between fiction and reality. The Cinémathèque de Tanger was created thanks to the eagerness of a group of artists who wanted to show less known and less projected cinema in Morocco which derived from distant geographical and aesthetic backgrounds.
