About

Joana Hadjithomas & Khalil Joreige Eileen Simpson & Ben White Gasworks presents an exhibition linking two feature-length films: I Want to See (2008) by Lebanese artists Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige, and Struggle in Jerash (2009) by London-based artists Eileen Simpson and Ben White. Respectively set in Lebanon and Jordan, the films emphasise cinema's potential to create new ways of confronting the past and negotiating the present in the context of the Middle East. Mixing fiction and documentary, I Want to See (2008) and Struggle in Jerash (2009) further foreground the power of the subjective voice in the production of history The films are shown twice a day and are accompanied by contextual material and two publications produced for the exhibition. Screening Schedule (during gallery opening hours): 12pm: I Want to See (74 min) 1.30pm: Struggle in Jerash (60 min) 2.45pm: I Want to See 4.15pm: Struggle in Jerash
