Christian Ghazi's iconoclastic 1971 masterpiece

Thursday April 11, 8:30pm


Now Booking

The first of three screen events leading up to the 2013 London Palestine Film Festival is this rare treat from the archives, presented in partnership with Hackney Picturehouse.

Hundred Faces for a Single Day, 1971 (click on image for film synopsis)

Never before screened in the UK, Hundred Faces for a Single Day is the avant garde masterwork that challenged the limits of militant filmmaking during the Palestinian revolutionary era. Multiple plotlines merge and dissolve as Ghazi collides documentary and abstract approaches to mount a blistering critique of the revolution's decadent political elites.

With a stunning experimental soundtrack and a daring lead turn from Madonna Ghazi, this is militant filmmaking at its most exhilarating and incendiary.

The third and final screen event of this year's PreFestival Season is this viscerally powerful portrait of six perpetrators of the 1982 Sabra and Shatila massacre, presented in partnership with the Ritzy, Brixton.

Massaker, 2005 (click on image for film synopsis)

Between September 16 and 18, 1982, for two nights and three days, the killers of Sabra and Shatila went about their crimes. Massaker is an unflinching portrait of six perpetrators of this most notorious episode of mass murder. Intense, claustrophobic, and often unsettling, the film explores the content of collective violence, exposing the mental dispositions of the killers, and asking how a political environment has continued to shield them from justice, and even remorse.
