Germination

 Urgent attempts to create and develop specific characteristics of the content. The development of complex concepts that are saturated with a mixture of ideologies, nostalgia, erasing and redrawing the map, deciphering identity, predicting fate. In this format that encourages a non-exclusive mode of presentation, some artists allow the viewer to exist within the artwork as a main character or as the main decision-maker in what is being seen. From dreams, hallucinations and romance to societal and visual explorations, the program looks at most-recent exceptional films and videos that experiment with the very own tools of the medium.

This program features four commissioned works specifically made for the occasion of the 9th edition, in addition to a music videos program in collaboration with Ma3azef.

Selection and Program: Mena El Shazly & Mohamed Allam
