Film Screenings at 12G Salon – Vibrations from Gaza & Spaces of Exception
January 13 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Vibrations from Gaza and Spaces of Exception will be screening at 12G on Saturday, January 13th from 2-4pm
After Spaces of Exception’s sold-out North American Theatrical Premiere run at Anthology Film Archives last month, as well as other screenings, the film is scheduled to be shown at 12G in Philadelphia this January! The film, co-directed by Matt Peterson and Malek Rasamny, investigates and juxtaposes the struggles, communities, and spaces of the Palestinian refugee camp and the American Indian reservation. Space of Exception was shot over the course of three years in the West Bank and Lebanon, as well as in Arizona, New Mexico, New York, and South Dakota. The film is an attempt to understand the significance of the land – its memory and divisions – and the conditions for life, community, and sovereignty. Spaces of Exception features interviews with members of the American Indian Movement, the Mohawk Warrior Society, and Diné families resisting displacement on Black Mesa, as well as Palestinian militant organizations based in the camps, alongside environmental activists, autonomous youth committees, and the families of political prisoners and martyrs.
Vibrations from Gaza is a short documentary by Rehab Nazzal that offers a glimpse into the experiences of Deaf children in the colonized and confined coastal territory of Gaza, Palestine. Born and raised under Israeli siege and frequent onslaughts, Amani, Musa, Israa, and other Deaf Children, provide vivid accounts of their encounter of bombardment and the constant presence of drones in their sky.
Vibrations from Gaza and Spaces of Exception will be screening at 12G on Saturday, January 13th at 2pm. This is an in-person screening. Masking is suggested and masks are available at the venue if needed. 12G will begin its program with an introduction from Matt Peterson, one of the directors of Spaces of Exception.
