In Focus: Basma al-Sharif

Born stateless and of Palestinian heritage, Basma al-Sharif’s work explores cyclical political histories and conflicts. In films and installations that move backward and forward in history, between place and non-place, she confronts the legacy of colonialism through satirical, immersive, and lyrical works.

Join us for a special in focus conversation with Basma al-Sharif, BFMAF24 Filmmaker in Focus led by Dr Viviane Saglier, lecturer in Film Studies at the University of St. Andrews.
