      à la santé des alliés

      Mounira Al Solh
      EYE Filmmuseum, Amsterdam
      1. Mounira Al Solh, 'à la santé des alliés' (2003-2016), video still.
    2. Tickets: €5-

      As part of If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution’s introductions to the artists and researchers of VII (2017–2018), Social Movement, we are pleased to present a screening of Mounira Al Solh’s à la santé des alliés (2003–2016) in the company of the artist. The event will take place at the EYE Filmmuseum, Amsterdam at 4pm.

      à la santé des alliés, which translates as ‘to the health of allies’, recounts the potentially endless variations of the beginning of a film. Through this, the film narrates layers of sub-stories and parallel events in Lebanon and Syria during the pan-Arab Nasserites movements of the 1950s and 60s. Told from the different perspective of the artist’s relatives, each person’s opinion and recollection of the same political or social incident begin to contradict each other, to mix up events both personal and political, and to reveal time as three-dimensional rather than linear.

      Admission to the screening is €5-. Tickets are available here

      Tickets are sold as a double bill and include admission to a presentation by Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez on Delphine Seyrig prior to the screening at 2pm. Further details on this programme are available here.        

      The programme of If I Can’t Dance is financially supported by the Mondriaan Fund, the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union, the AFK (Amsterdam Fund for the Arts), and Ammodo.
