B. H. YAEL: FAMILY STATES
BOOK LAUNCH & CONVERSATION WITH B. H. YAEL AND SPECIAL GUESTS
On Sunday, April 25 join us for a live-stream celebration, film screening and book launch for b.h. Yael: Family States, a new book edited by Mike Hoolboom dedicated to acclaimed media artist b.h. Yael.
b.h. Yael: Family States, which editor Mike Hoolboom calls a “community place,” embodies the creative and collaborative spirit of b.h. Yael’s life-work, and as such this event will feature conversations with Richard Fung, Dalia Kandiyoti, and Robert Massoud, three of the book’s contributors. This eclectic publication is sponsored by the ConverSalon collective.
A reception (digital mingling encouraged!) will follow the event and will be facilitated by Ashok Mathur, Dean of Graduate Studies, OCAD University.
The launch will also feature clips from FRESH BLOOD (1996), DEIR YASSIN REMEMBERED (2006) and TRADING THE FUTURE (2008). This selection of short films examines questions of Arab Jewishness, Israeli denial of the Palestinian Nakbah (disaster), as well as the intersections of planetary and religious narratives.
The complete version of the films will be made available for free streaming on Cinema Politica On Demand for a week prior to the event and 48 hours after, and subsequently, a curated selection of Yael’s films will live on the streaming platform.
▪ You will receive a private link to view b.h. Yael’s films (available in Canada only) on Monday April 19, and a link to the video conference on the day of the event.
▪ By making a Solidarity Contribution or a Donation, you will receive a pdf of Family States via email (see ticket options in Eventbrite registration).
