Non-Aligned & Ciné-Guerrillas: Scenes from the Labudović Reels Day 1
On March 6 at 6:00 p.m. there will be a preview screening of the first half of the diptych: Non-Aligned. The film re-traces the birth of the Non-Aligned movement, examining how cinema gave expression to a global dream of political emancipation.
About the project
The films are part of a long-term artistic research project titled Non-Aligned Newsreels. Developed via ongoing collaboration with Filmske Novosti – the Yugoslav Newsreels, it seeks to re-activate the collection of materials filmed by their cameraman across the non-aligned world, from cinematic collaborations with newly-independent countries in the 1950s to footage shot for liberation movements in the 1960s and 1970s. A multimedia project spanning films, video installations, live performance and a book, and an evolving web portal at www.nonalignednewsreels.com
Non-Aligned, 2022, 100 min, Serbian/French, English Subtitles.
This event is sponsored by the Maison Française, the Heyman Center for the Humanities and the Institute for Ideas and Imagination.
