Hreash House Film Screening and Feast
Fri, May 12, 2017, 1:30 PM – 4:00 PM BST
Meet new people, maybe bring along a friend, explore new films and new ways of making in the surroundings of Armley Mills and its cinema, as well as working with friendly staff and artists. Everyone is welcome.
Leeds Industrial Museum and Leeds Art Gallery bring you a special series of free film screenings, workshops and food. While Leeds Art Gallery is closed to the public we will be hosting the rarely seen film collection at Armley Mills cinema, along with artist-led workshops designed to get everyone making and talking... and there’ll be tea and cake of course!
Our 2nd film of the programme is the 2004 film Hreash House by Palestian/Irish artist Rosalind Nashashibi in which the film maker shows an extended Palestinian family living a collective existence in a concrete block in Nazareth. It involves a feast and its aftermath during Ramadan and shows one family as an entire community, casting a light upon different notions of family within our cultures.
After the screening we'll invite you all to a workshop where we can cook up our own feast to share while we discuss the film and any thoughts or issues it might have raised for you.
