  • Anya: Straight Stories, Part 2

    2008. France/Turkey. Directed by Bouchra Khalili. On one hand an exploration of the Bosphorus as a “continuous drift” between Europe and Asia; on the other, the tale (recounted via voiceover) of Anya, an undocumented Iraqi who has lived in the region for 12 years awaiting a visa to Australia. 12 min.

  • VHS Kahloucha

    2006. Tunisia. Directed by Néjib Belkadhi. This documentary on amateur Tunisian filmmaker Moncef Kahloucha follows the filmmaker as he produces, directs, buys props, casts parts, edits, and eventually premieres his Tarzan of the Arabs to Tunisian immigrants in Sicily. Belkadhi’s film is a charming elegy to the empowering mystique of cinema and the passions it inspires. 80 min.
