Crude double feature

16 February @ 5.00 pm - 6.30 pm

AED 50

A second and final film screening by Jameel Arts Centre in collaboration with Cinema Akil on the theme of Jameel’s current group exhibition Crude (on till 30 March). The programme:

Behind the Sun: dir Monira Al Qadiri (2014)

After the first Gulf War in 1991, numerous oilfields in Kuwait were set ablaze. In this work, amateur VHS video footage of the fires is juxtaposed with audio monologues from Islamic television programmes of the same period.

Lessons of Darkness: dir Werner Herzog (1992)

Another apocalyptic vision featuring the oil well fires in Kuwait after the Gulf War, stylised as science fiction – there are few shots in which you can recognise our planet.

The programme will be introduced by the curator of Crude, Murtaza Vali.
