A Film Screening With Live Music Is Coming To Sharjah

Dec 07,2018

Sharjah Art Foundation has announced its second edition of 'Re|sound', a biannual event for musical experimentation in dialogue with the medium of film. The foundation invites locally and regionally based musicians to prepare and perform live original sets in conversation with a projected film.

Re|sound will be held at Mirage City Cinema in Al Mureijah Square, Sharjah and will feature Dziga Vertov’s 1931 film Enthusiasm: Symphony of the Donbass with live performances by electronic experimental musicians Liliane Chlela, Salem Rashid and Shams Asma

Enthusiasm: Symphony of the Donbass is a Black and White feature from 1931. It depicts the celebration of socialism in the region of the Donbass (located in present-day Ukraine), where Stalin’s five-year plan focused its efforts on generating economic productivity. The film addresses religion and ecstasy, construction and growth, and the unified masses within the regime. 

The screening will take place on Friday, December 14 from 8:30pm - 10:00pm. Event is free and open to the public.
