Occupied City + Q&A with Steve McQueen
Institute of Contemporary Arts
Occupied City, dir. Steve McQueen, UK, Netherlands, USA 2024, 266 mins.

Where do the memories of a city go? From Oscar- and BAFTA-winning filmmaker and Turner Prize-winning visual artist Steve McQueen comes this mesmerising and monumental excavation of how the past haunts our precarious present: mirroring it and warning us in plain sight.

In Occupied City, a searching camera sweeps through a vibrant contemporary Amsterdam while, at the same time, the film summons people and memories of the past under Nazi occupation within the city’s map and woven into the fabric of its streets and buildings. McQueen opens up a poetic, dreamlike space where unthinkable history and hope for a new future co-exist. 

This screening is followed by an in-person Q&A with Steve McQueen, hosted by artist and writer Dan Guthrie. More screenings of the film can be found here.
