In light of the tragedy that took place out at sea in El-Mina last night, we are cancelling the TripoliScope screenings. Our thoughts are with all those affected and their families.
As an homage to the city of Tripoli, UMAM D&R is hosting three nights of film screenings, featuring ten films by seven Tripolitan filmmakers. The screenings will take place at Tal Al Oulya on April 25 and 26, and at Rumman on April 27. The screenings follow the framework of TripoliScope, a developing essay exhibition on Tripoli’s cinema culture and practices.
The films span 65 years of filmmaking, blending George Nasser’s masterful “Ila Ayn,” with a selection of short, documentary, and feature films by a highly talented younger generation of Tripolitan filmmakers.
The films are grouped into three sections: ILA AYN, CASTING TRIPOLI, and (NOT) ABOUT LOVE. The screenings address migration, questions of identity, social justice and belonging, aging and love, dreaming and remembering.
