Dardishi Festival Diasporic Daydreams: Storytelling, Solidarity and Survival in our films

Sat 9 March 2019

Diasporic Daydreams

What do our films tell us about living through trauma? How can film be used as a tool to healing ourselves and the world?

Join us for a showcase of short films by and about Arab and North African womxn living in diaspora, followed by a discussion with writer Sumaya Kassim. Films include Bayan Dahdah’s latest short, Shishbarak, which explores intergenerational conflict; a film-interview by Georgette Keane about her mother’s experiences of immigration; an animated film by Alia Hijaab, which follows a displaced Syrian woman; and the documentary ‘The Museum Will Not Be Decolonised’ by Sumaya Kassim and Arwa Aburawa.

Access: All areas of the venue are accessible to those with limited mobility, including wheelchair users. Large print versions of our printed programme will be available throughout the Festival. All films are in English language (featuring some Arabic language) and all films include English language subtitles.
