Curated by Mizna’s Film Programming Coordinator Ahmed Abdulmageed, the two-month segment presents films produced during the global leftist movements in the 1970s. This selection celebrates Algerian filmmakers and their collaborators, Farouk Beloufa, Djouhra Abouda, and Alain Bonnamy, who captured the political complexities of the moment, as well as the rhythmic and aesthetic make-up of their diasporas, by breaking away from traditional filmic forms. Their films push the formal boundaries of filmmaking by combining experimental aesthetics with political and social commentary and action. After you head to the screening, join everyone for a post-watch meet-up at The Howe. WEDS, 7 PM. $10.
