Syrian Evening

Event12 November 2015, 17:30Hochschule für Bildende Künste–Städelschule, Dürerstr. 10, 60596 Frankfurt am Main

Filmvorführung in Anwesenheit des Regisseurs Ossama Mohammed
MA’AL AL-FIDDA Silvered Water – Syria Self Portrait
17:30 Uhr, Filmmuseum, Schaumainkai 41, 60596 Frankfurt am Main

Der syrische Filmemacher Ossama Mohammed lebt seit 2011 im Pariser Exil, doch die Bilder aus seiner Heimat, gefilmt von Aktivisten, lassen ihn nicht los. Als ihn die junge kurdische Regisseurin Wiam Simav Bedirxan aus Homs kontaktiert, die die Bombenangriffe auf die Stadt dokumentiert hat, beginnt ein Austausch der beiden Filmemacher. Entstanden ist ein so aufwühlender wie wahrhaftiger Film, der in einem Mosaik aus Youtube-Videos und Dokumentaraufnahmen einen Dialog in Bildern entwirft. Der ergreifende Monolog über das Exil lädt zum Nachdenken über die Kraft der Bilder ein.

Frankreich/Syrien 2014. R: Ossama Mohammed, Wiam Simav Bedirxan.

Künstlergespräch: # Lets_talk_about_Syria
Elias Perabo, Ossama Mohammed, Khaled Barakeh u.a.
ca. 19:15 Uhr, Aula Städelschule

In conjunction with Film Museum and Städelschule, Khaled Barakeh will moderate a dialogue on the current situation in Syria.

Elias Perabo is a political scientist. He was traveling through Syria in April 2011 when the Syrian Spring erupted. He saw with his own eyes how the land changed from one day to the next, as the people lost their fear and began to go out on the street. At first he worked on the establishment of international media relations for Syrian activists, later he developed a broad network of contacts and co-founded Adopt a Revolution.

The Adopt a Revolution project was launched by Syrian and German activists in 2011 in the face of the brutal persecution of the peaceful uprising against the regime of Bashar al-Assad. The project has the following four objectives: Financial Support, Build a Bridge of Solidarity, Knowledge Transfer and Civil Intervention. Its an initiative that allows individuals and civil society groups outside of Syria to "adopt" a Syrian activist group of their choice and help it to survive and succeed in the uprising.

Born in Latakia in 1954, Ossama Mohammed graduated from the Russian State Institute of Cinematography (VGIK) in 1979. His first fiction feature 'Stars in Broad Daylight - 1988' was selected at the Cannes Film Festival, and earned the filmmaker great critical praise, including the Golden palm at the Valencia Festival. Complex and visually stunning, his second feature film 'Sacrifices - 2002' has confirmed its maker as one of the Soviet film school's graduates most individual and masterful filmmakers. Ossama Mohammed won lots of international film festivals' prizes around the world.

After 2011 in the forced exile in Paris, Ossama Mohammed began a new cinematic adventure, Silvered Water - Syria Self- Portrait' Shot by a reported '1,001 Syrians', the film impressionistically documents the destruction and atrocities of the civil war through a combination of eye-witness accounts shot on mobile phones and posted to the internet, and footage shot by Bedirxan during the siege of Homs. Bedirxan, an elementary school teacher in Homs, had contacted Mohammed online to ask him what he would film if he was there. Mohammed, working in forced exile in Paris, is tormented by feelings of cowardice as he witnesses the horrors from afar, and the self-reflexive film also chronicles how he is haunted in this dreams by a Syrian boy once shot to death for snatching his camera on the street. 

Born in 1976 in Damascus Suburb, Khaled Barakeh graduated in 2005 from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Damascus, Syria, and completed his MFA at Funen Art Academy in 2010 in Odense, Denmark. He has exhibited at the Künstlerhaus Stuttgart; Golden Thread Gallery, Northern Ireland; Kunsthalle Brandts; Ovegarden, Denmark; Smack Mellon in New York City; and many other institutions. Barakeh finished his Meisterschüler with Simon Starling, at the Städelschule Academy of Fine Arts in Frankfurt am Main in 2013.

Syrian specialties will be served by Städelschules Kochwerkstatt.
