UK PREMIERE Foedora + conversation
Institute of Contemporary Arts
April 2023
Foedora, dir. Judith Abensour, France 2021, 80 min. 

In May 2016, a new museum dedicated to Palestinian history and culture opened in Ramallah. Inaugurated with no exhibition, the museum remained empty for several months until a first exhibition devoted to Jerusalem was organised.

The film takes place over this transition period, during the construction of a dream city, in sharp contrast with a political reality that makes the future prospects for a Palestinian State increasingly hypothetical.

Judith Abensour’s delicate work echoes and reflects on current events; presented in a context marked by violence in the region, but also by a new form of questioning about the place of cultural institutions in our society.

This UK Premiere is followed by a pre-recorded conversation between film director Judith Abensour and independent curator, writer and academic Nat Muller.

Foedora is an ICA Exclusive project.
