Arab Film Festival and De Voorkamer organize film screenings every two months with the presence of the makers for Q&A. The films are curated by AFF and shown in De Voorkamer. For the second edition, "Face B" by the actress, singer, and director Leila Albayaty will be screened.
The b-side of a record often contains hidden treasures and secrets. When Leila decides to make her first feature, Berlin Telegram, a lot happens between the lines. She says she is auditioning for the film, while in fact she is its director and main protagonist. With a suitcase full of music, she travels between Berlin and Paris and meets musicians and actors on the way. Her story is told as a mysterious hybrid somewhere between autobiography and fiction – poetry, perhaps. Leila decides to steal her own images, to secretly pocket her b-sides to edit a new, even more ambiguous film. How often are you allowed to tell a story? How often can you reassemble your footage? There is no answer to that question. Instead, there is a new film.
The language of this film is English, the entrance is free of charge.
Doors open at 19:30, the screening starts at 20:00.
Join us for this ‘gezellige' evening and get ready for our conversation with Leila Albayaty.
