A DIALOGUE ON CRAFT WITH HEBA KHALED, TALAL DERKI, AND GUY DAVIDI
11:30-13:00 Thursday 23.03, Social Cinema, Kunsthal Charlottenborg
Join us for A DIALOGUE ON CRAFT with the Academy Award nominated Syrian Kurdish filmmakers Talal Derki and Heba Khaled (Of Fathers and Sons, 2018) in conversation with Academy Award nominated and Emmy Award winner Israeli filmmaker Guy Davidi (5 Broken Cameras, 2011), discussing their most recent films Under the Sky of Damascus (2023) and Innocence (2022), featured by this year’s CPH:DOX, following their Berlinale and Venezia premiere. The filmmakers will discuss the challenges and creative obstacles of making politically critical films in their war-thorn home countries, whose respective regimes fail in guaranteeing freedom and equality to all its citizens. While the world turns away from the “old news,” their filmmaking keeps challenging deeply grounded power structures of the status quo.
