From The Arab Fund for Arts and Culture

Palestinian director Mohanad Yaqubi, AFAC Grantee for his feature documentary film Off Frame: A Journey through militant cinema, will deliver a Master Class on Palestinian Militant Cinema on Friday May 1st at Columbia University's Palestine Cuts, a new space for emerging and established filmmakers and video-artists to present and discuss their work in an engaging and encouraging environment.

Drawing on recently found film rushes, rare documentary footage and clips of Third Cinema, Yaqubi will introduce the audience to a fascinating and often neglected world that engages with the depth of Palestine's film-making history, its role in shaping Palestinian identity, and its ties to the wider Third Cinema movement. The closed session will consist of screening a fine cut version of "Off Frame", and a discussion with Yaqubi who will be coming from Ramallah to launch this initiative.
