An afternoon with Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige, including a lecture performance, a conversation with art historian and critic T.J. Demos and a screening. 3pm LECTURE PERFORMANCE: Aida, Save Me Taking as a starting point an extraordinary incident that took place during the Beirut premiere of their second feature film A Perfect Day (2005), Aida, Save me explores the artists and filmmakers' relationship to the 'latent image'. Accompanied by film samples and visuals, the lecture performance will take the viewer through several of their works, placing the image and its potential at the centre of a discussion about representation and recognition, fiction and documentary. 4pm CONVERSATION: Following the hour-long performance, T.J. Demos will chair a discussion with Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige, furthering the themes approached in Aida, Save Me. 5pm SCREENING: The Lost Film (2003, 42 min) A copy of the filmmakers's first feature film disappeared in Yemen on the day of the tenth anniversary of the reunification of North and South. A year later the artists returned, following the track of the lost film. The Lost Film is an enquiry that takes Hadijthomas and Joreige on a personal quest focusing on the image and on their status as filmmakers in this part of the world.
