Event description

Description

Wednesday 17 May / 6.30pm / The Box / £4 / £3, booking required

Join FACT and Radical Film Network for a film-screening and panel event exploring the role of the filmmaker as activist. Seeking to counter the largely fictional (and often hysterically inaccurate) narrative on Syrian refugees put forward by the mainstream media, filmmaker Yannis Koufonikos questions how much of this narrative is fiction, constructing a positive representation of refugees and their struggles built around his work inside the Alexandria refugee camp in Greece.

Inspired by How much of this is fiction., FACT presents a specially curated film programme drawing influence from the idea of artist as activist. Featuring films chosen by exhibiting artists and local community and grassroots activist groups, the films may have inspired works in the exhibition, or share the political and socially engaged ethos of Tactical Media in their aim to challenge or shift public perception.
