Some Strings

Filmmakers and artists from around the world have formed Some strings, an ensemble of unreleased filmic gestures that, along with others, tell the story of the events that occur in the world, so that witnesses increase.

“Each memory that is freed is the first step for all memories to gather” (Edouard Glissant).

Some strings is rooted in that which stains the screens of history: in Palestine, where poet and teacher Refaat Alareer, like so many others beings, was targeted by Israeli strikes and killed along with seven other members of his family. His last poem, “If I Must Die”, written between earth and sky five weeks before his death, calls for the making of a kite with some strings. Some strings is the legacy of such call, as did each of his readers inherits it as well. The kite, now an object of resistance, and its strings, now in the hands of some one hundred artists, represent a diversity of perspectives on one of the darkest moments of the 21st century. Some strings is released as widely as possible, all over the world, in theaters as part of a pre-show program, in festivals, also in a row, in a wide variety of spaces, because everyone take it own piece of string. will keep on giving news about more initiatives throughout the world.
