Sione Tuìvailala Monū: Stories features a programme of screenings by international artists which extends the exhibition’s ideas about identity and story-telling in the digital age.
Meriem Bennani (Morocco/USA) creates digitally layered and playful films which often fudge documentary and make-believe, employing humour and contradiction to deconstruct established binaries between East and West.
Join us for a screening of two of Bennani’s films: Siham and Hafida (2017), which documents the generational rift between two chikhats in Morocco; and Party on the CAPS (2018), set on an island-refugee-camp for illegal refugees who have been caught mid-teleportation—in a world where teleportation has replaced planes.
This screening will be introduced by Moya Lawson, the curator of Sione Tuívailala Monū: Stories.
