Event description
Join us for a discussion on individual and institutional efforts towards a formalized Palestinian audiovisual archive.

About this Event

“Archive fever” is the term Professor Beshara Doumani has given to the Palestinian obsession with locating and preserving historic resources. This fixation, triggered by the 1948 uprooting of the Palestinian people from their homeland, has been driven by the state of Israel’s abduction of Palestinian historical material, which continues today.

To discuss this “fever” and the urgency to locate and preserve Palestinian archives, The Void Project and the London Palestine Film Festival co-present, Archiving Palestine. This event presents a panel of academics and filmmakers to discuss various individual and institutional efforts towards a formalized Palestinian audiovisual archive.

The absence of a safe and secure homeland in which Palestinians can store and accumulate an archive, poses a serious issue when attempting to collect archive. The panelists will address the national threats and security issues that put endanger the efforts towards a national archive. They will also focus on the current role of digital media in offering solutions to today’s Palestinian dilemma.

The panel, will be chaired by filmmaker and founder of The Void Project, Azza El-Hassan.
