Off Frame: Reflections on Palestinian militant cinema

Off Frame: Reflections on Palestinian militant cinema

A presentation by Mohanad Yaqubi followed by Q&A

What is left today from the Palestinian revolution are some images and sounds, pieces of film scattered around the world and preserved in tins categorised by other people. These films record the life of people that are no longer on Earth; places that have changed; a history that doesn’t have a place in memory. In this presentation, Mohanad Yaqubi will address the story of Palestinian revolutionary cinema by following the life of the Palestine Film Unit, a film group that was established in 1968 and developed with the revolution until the Israeli invasion of Beirut in 1982.
