I Want to See / Struggle in Jerash

Gasworks presents an exhibition linking two feature-length films: I Want to See (2008) by Lebanese artists Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige, and Struggle in Jerash (2009) by London-based artists Eileen Simpson and Ben White.

Respectively set in Lebanon and Jordan, the films emphasise cinema’s potential to create new ways of confronting the past and negotiating the present in the context of the Middle East. Mixing fiction and documentary, I Want to See (2008) and Struggle in Jerash (2009) further foreground the power of the subjective voice in the production of history

The films are shown twice a day and are accompanied by contextual material and two publications produced for the exhibition.

Private View: Thursday 15th April, 6.30 – 9pm

Duration 16 April 2010 - 30 May 2010
