The series will be screened on Sharjah Art Foundation’s social media from May 29 to June 26.
Sharjah Art Foundation has announced a new short film screening series presented in collaboration with Habibi Collective.
The screenings will begin from May 29 at 8:30 pm, featuring five short films that deconstruct mainstream narratives of maternal bonds, beauty standards, love stories, cooking and the archiving of memories.
The films include Basma Alsharif’s The Story of Milk and Honey (2011); Pam Nasr’s Clams Casino (2018); Sahar Gorishi’s The Fall of the Standard of Beauty: The Iranian Nose (2019); Moza Almatrooshi’s Staff of Life (2019); and Chahine Fellahi’s Chergui (2019).
The Livestream can be accessed through a link provided Sharjah Art Foundation’s Facebook page. The films will be screened consecutively and are not available to be streamed on-demand.
Viewers who join the screening at a later time will not be able to watch the entire programme from the beginning. More information about each film is available on their website.
The programme is the first in a three-part series of online screenings, running from 29 May to 26 June, that celebrate MENA female filmmaking. Information about upcoming screenings will soon be announced on Sharjah Art Foundation’s social platforms and website.
