This summer’s series presents a retrospective of the collaborative film projects of Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige.Often blending history and fantasy, Hadjithomas and Joreige’s work captures the mood and contradictions of Lebanon in the post-war moment, and both their narrative and documentary work challenge the relationship between fact and fantasy and the writing of history. They use film to untangle representation from its referent, and their work engages the construction of memory from fragments.  

 

In June, July, and August, Mizna will screen a curated selection of Hadjithomas and Joreige’s films, culminating in September with a filmmaker visit and discussion of their latest narrative feature Memory Box, which will open the sixteenth Twin Cities Arab Film Festival at the Walker Art Center.

Nabil returns to Beirut with the ashes of his father who died abroad. He tries to overcome his bereavement while his family insists on respecting rites and customs by burying a non-existent corpse.
