R21 AKA restoring solidarity

Mohanad Yaqubi, 2022, 71′

In English, Japonese, Arabic with French subtitles

The growing struggle for Palestinian self-determination between 1960 and 1980 was supported by radical left-wing movements worldwide, also in Japan. This is illustrated by a collection of 16mm films by militant filmmakers from various countries, which were dubbed and screened in Japan. Their Japanese audiences felt oppressed by the US after World War II, and not only sympathized but also identified with the Palestinians.

Mohanad Yaqubi is a Palestinian filmmaker, producer, and one of the founders of the Ramallah-based production house Idioms Film. Yaqubialso is one of the founders of the research and curatorial collective Subversive Films, which focuses on militant film practices, and a founding member of the Palestine Film Institute.

Event location : Buen Vivir, Place Fernand Cocq 23, Brussels, Belgium

This screening is organised by CADTM (the Committee for the Abolition of Illegal Debt) and the independent media Pour Press (https://www.cadtm.org/)
