Perpetual Recurrences

Four decades of filmmaking in and about Palestine come together in this montage by Reem Shilleh. The film tracks repetition in films by militant filmmakers from the Palestinian revolutionary period 1968–82 and in more contemporary films. Reem Shilleh is a researcher, curator and writer whose work expands across the moving image spectrum, often focusing on the movie itself. Her research interests have led into projects that explore and discuss the Palestinian narrative and its historical formation in regards to image production, both moving and still. In 2011 she co-founded Subversive Film, a collective that produces research-based works in relation to rare filmic material on Palestine and the region. She is based in Ramallah.
