The World is With Us, Global Film and Poster Art from the Palestinian Revolution, 1968 - 1980

This is just a pointer to a Middle East Monitor interview with Nick Denes, one of the directors of the London Palestine Film Festival, about the upcoming cinema and gallery series with the above title.

Here's a taste:
"We want to capture this sense of their being 'living' media rather than artificially sacralised or displayed with a gallery-style reverence that was never their original intention, and which jars with their very nature as political ephemera, however wonderful their artistic content might be."
And another:




The World is With Us, Global Film and Poster Art from the Palestinian Revolution, 1968-1980 will begin at the Barbican Cinema on 16 May and continue at the Rich Mix until 14 June.
