ISP Films. The Short Films of Larissa Sansour

Wednesday, December 6, 2017
7:00-8:30 PM
555 Weiser Hall Map
Larissa Sansour is a Palestinian artist and filmmaker who uses experimental methods and sci-fi tropes to examine Palestinian identity and Middle East politics. By turns entertaining, thought provoking, and frightening, her films brilliantly explore one aspect of the Islamic Studies Program's theme, "Muslim Futures": the use of future tense speculation to understand the present. Join us to watch three of her shorts: "In The Future They Ate From the Finest Porcelain" (29 min., 2015), "A Space Exodus" (6 mins., 2008), and "Nation Estate" (10 mins., 2012).
