Marking 100 years since the Balfour Declaration took Palestinians’ fate out of Palestinian hands, this day-long event traces the legacy of colonialism – through films, readings, and special guest presentations. Sessions feature writers Ghada Karmi, Karma Nabulsi and artist Larissa Sansour among other guests, the poetry of Mahmoud Darwish, screenings of Infiltrators(2012) by Khaled JarrarBeyrouth, Ma Ville (1982) by Jocelyne Saab and revolutionary film from the PLO film unit in exile (1974), as well as colonial films produced during the British Mandate in Palestine. The day aims to give a perspective on anti-colonial resistance past and present, culminating in a discussion of questions of responsibility and the role of the imagination in creating a shared future, from Britain to Palestine and beyond.


Curated by Miranda Pennell, in consultation with Jenny Morgan and Sarah Beddington.
