Short Films: Renegotiating Gender Scripts - ALFILM Arab Film Festival Berlin

Das sagt der/die Veranstalter:in:

The screening is followed by a talk with Tareq Baconi, Caitlin McLoed, Anouch Basbous and Kawthar Younis

The short film program Renegotiating Gender Scripts brings together six shorts that differ  very much in their form and content. From the playful and daring One Like Him directed by Caitlin McLeod and written by Palestinian author Tareq Baconi, to the campy VHS Tape Replaced from the Saudi Arabian filmmaker Maha Al-Saati, or the award-winning chamber piece My Girl Friend by Egyptian director Kawthar Younis, the films of this program question traditional gender identities by presenting queer storylines and protagonists that renegotiate heteronormative gender roles.
