OFF FRAME

RUNNING TIME : 1h20 COUNTRY : Palestine PRODUCTION YEAR : 2016 ARTISTE(S) ET COLLABORATEUR(S) : De Mohanad Yaqubi

In his feature-length film, Mohanad Yaqubi untangles the fraught history of his homeland, with a remarkable precision and grace using found footage, much of it newly discovered, to retrace Palestinians’ struggle for self-determination and dignity. The film is centered on the Palestine Film Unit, a group founded in the 1960s that saw itself as the cinematic front of the Palestinian movement. The PFU shared kinship with other politically engaged artistic movements, such as Third Cinema. Yaqubi revisits Jean-Luc Godard’s Here and Elsewhere (also referring to the original title of Godard’s documentary, Until Victory) and draws the film full circle with contemporary reality of Palestine.

Mohanad Yaqubi is a filmmaker, producer, and one of the founders of the Ramallah-based production outfit, Idioms Film. He also teaches Film Studies at the International Art Academy in Palestine. Yaqubi is also one of the founders of the research and curatorial collective Subversive Films, that focuses on militant film practices. Yaqubi’s filmography as a producer includes the narrative short Pink Bullet (directed by Ramzi Hazboun), and as co-producer the narrative feature Habibi (directed by Susan Youssef, 2010) and the short narrative Though I Know the River is Dry (directed by Omar R. Hamilton, 2012) and the documentary feature Infiltrators (directed by Khaled Jarrar, 2013). In 2013, Yaqubi initiated and produced Suspended Time, an anthology that reflects on 20 years after the signing of the Oslo Peace Accords, and includes nine filmmakers. His latest film No Exit, (written with Omar Kheiry), premiered at the Dubai International Film Festival in 2015. The feature film Off Frame AKA Revolution Until Victory made its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in the fall of 2016.

Followed by a discussion with Mohanad Yaqubi and Jean-Pierre Rehm.

After completing studies in Philosophy, Jean-Pierre Rehm has taught history, theory of art and film. He has curated exhibitions, authored monographs of artists and filmmakers, and collaborated to the Cahiers du Cinéma. Since 2002, he has been the director of FIDMarseille.
