An Excavation
Maeve Brennan | 2022 | UK | 20min


Foragers
Jumana Manna | 2022 | Palestine | 65min


An Excavation is part of a multidisciplinary project from artist Maeve Brennan in which Forensic archaeologists Dr Christos Tsirogiannis and Dr Vinnie Norskov set out to unravel the history of a series of 4th century BCE vases discovered in a trove of seized crates at Geneva Freeport in 2014.

Foragers by Jumana Manna takes as its focus Palestinian resilience to Israeli legislation preventing the foraging of wild edible plants –akkoub and za’atar. Used in cooking over many centuries, the film follows these plants from earth to kitchen as a way to mark the alienation of Palestinians as they are denied historic rights of foraging.

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.
