LACMA’s Wallis Annenberg Photography Department, the Ralph M. Parsons Fund and Bidoun present Another Border - Films and Videos from the Cinémathèque de Tanger Archives at LACMA in Los Angeles this June. The series is co-curated by Bidoun contributor, collaborator and friend, Yto Barrada.
Bidoun hosts the screenings on Tuesday June 9 at 7PM in the Leo S.Bing Theater. Regular contributor Gary Dauphin will be presents, along with the world premiere of the Bidoun video commercial and a Bidoun hosted intermission reception.
The Cinémathèque de Tanger is a nonprofit organization based in Tangiers, Morocco devoted to the preservation and promotion of Moroccan cinema. Curated by Bouchra Khalili and Yto Barrada, Another Border showcases the vitality of contemporary Moroccan film and video alongside the richness of historic archival footage from the region. This selection of Moroccan short movies, documentaries, experimental films, and videos follows the fault lines between representation and reality, in both daily life and extraordinary circumstances. The intersection between tradition, globalization, and shifting notions of ‘modernity’ creates not a clash, but a fertile space for reflection. Addressing both the complex space between the West and Morocco, the program provides a platform for further dialogue on the ideas of hope and hospitality.
