General Entry

Acclaimed Belgian filmmaker Johan Grimonprez introduces his latest film Blue Orchids (2017, 48min). It offers portraits of experts situated at opposite poles of the global arms trade: Chris Hedges (former New York Times war correspondent) and Riccardo Privitera (former arms dealer). One dedicated his life to unmasking lies; the other built his life on them. Grimonprez's film Dial H-I-S-T-O-R-Y (1997, 68min) features in Iconography of Revolt.
