The London Palestine Film Festival begins on May 3rd. In the meantime, there’s a three-event pre-season which begins at Hackney Picturehouse on Thursday with the premiere of Hundred Faces for a Single Day (1971).
Here’s what the organisers have to say about the film:
Never before screened in the UK, Hundred Faces for a Single Day is the avant garde masterwork that challenged the limits of militant filmmaking during the Palestinian revolutionary era. Multiple plotlines merge and dissolve as Ghazi collides documentary and abstract approaches to mount a blistering critique of the revolution’s decadent political elites.
With a stunning experimental soundtrack and a daring lead turn from Madonna Ghazi, this is militant filmmaking at its most exhilarating and incendiary.
Tickets available here. 8.30pm, Thursday, Hackney Picturehouse.
