A rare chance to explore remarkable film archives from the British colonial era.  A selection of works by amateur and professional filmmakers are on show, from Allenby’s triumphant march on Jerusalem, via the “home movies” of troops and officers, to meticulous propaganda designed by political strategists. (Silent films accompanied by commentary from Francis Gooding of the Colonial Film project).

Followed by a panel with filmmaker Kamal Aljafari, art historian Francis Gooding, historian Ilan Pappe, and anthropologist Christopher Pinney. Chaired by Mezna Qato.

Co-presented with the Colonial Film project. colonialfilm.org.uk
