Axis of Light

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Axis of Light, is a poignant observation, through the work of eight leading artists;
Rachid Koraichi, Jananne al-Ani, Etel Adnan, Shirin Neshat, Youssef Nabil, MonaHatoum, Mona Saudi and Ayman Baalbaki to the beauty and mystery of the Middle East which is often ignored, especially today where strife, anger and violence demand centre stage in our media…where stereotypes and prejudices distort our view of this region. Through their eyes, the film moves between their worlds…between the worlds of both the East and the West and the past and present…exploring the meaning of their existence, identity, conflicts of sexuality the isolation of woman and the fragility of home and place. The history they have and the future they can lead us towards. It is a story of hope, but one that recognises the power of expression often against the odds.
