video Full HD et son stéréo
The film Dehia takes the viewer on a journey of the golden days of the Amazigh, being the native inhabitants of Libya. As they have been oppressed by the succession of colonial forces, there were many attempts to burry their history and erase their identity. The video then shifts to question the present and the unknown future of the Amazigh generations, after the revolutions that took place in 2011.
Rawand Haress is an independent film maker. Her usage of digital films as a medium serves the purpose of shedding light on the minorities whose voices are not loud enough to be heard. Her work raises questions in relation to cultural identity, mental issues, and the socio-political issues in the Arab region. Two videos, Dehia and Amskkar, will be screened during this exhibition. The former takes the viewer on a journey of the golden days of the Amazigh and the present and the unknown future of the Amazigh generations. The latter deals with the discomforting feeling of not belonging anywhere despite one’s nationality, age, color, sex or race. It also touches upon the psychological struggles, when the mind is like home, but becomes another restless place to be.
