Artists’ Film International is a collaborative project featuring film, video and animation from around the world. During 2020 (and early 2021), works responding to the theme of language will unfold across all 20 partner organisations.
Due to the current closure of the Gallery the AFI Screenings (2020) can be viewed online.
Now through Wednesday, 3 March:
Amina Dryabee, Determinism and Free Will (2019), (2:51mins), Selected by Centre for Contemporary Arts Afghanistan (CCAA), Kabul.
Amina Dryabee’s Determinism and Free Will (2019) offers a philosophical reflection on our forms of knowledge and destinies. Is life predetermined, or do we have agency to control our futures? As we emerge from COVID lockdown to new horizons of thought, her work makes manifest the cycle of writing and erasure of histories. Within the artists’ context in Afghanistan, this question is particularly poignant for women, as much of CCAA’s work revolves around empowering young people through training in the medium of video and the visual arts.
