Wael Shawky Film Screening and Conversation

Wednesday 3 May 2017, 06.00PM – 09.00PM Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art, Education City, Doha, Qatar

Join artist Wael Shawky for the regional premiere of his newest production, Al Araba Al Madfuna III (2015-16), commissioned by Mathaf. In the third film from the series Al Araba Al Madfuna (2012- 2016), Shawky continues to draw inspiration from his experience living in Upper Egypt and from Mohamed Mustagab’s collection of short stories Tales from Dayrut (1983). He creates an experimental cinematic experience about the way society writes and fictionalizes history. Following the screening, Shawky will be in conversation with Mathaf Director Abdellah Karroum to discuss the film and his research on the history of the Gulf, a new project initiated as part of his residency at Mathaf over 2016-17.

The event will be held in English. It is free and open to all.
