In the Unseen: Representing violence and conflict

25 March

Sat 25 March | 15.00 | Civic House

This is a free event but registration is recommended.


Following the screening of Spatial Hunger: In The UnseenScottish Documentary Institute hosts an open conversation about ethics and alternative approaches in documenting violence, conflict and war, by focusing on the power of evading voyeurism and exploitative or traumatic imagery. 

They are joined by Pavel Mozhar, director of Handbook (winner of the GSFF22 Bill Douglas Award), Laura Wadha, director of Born in Damascus (winner of the Berlinale Crystal Bear for Best Short Film in Generation 14+), and Sinead Kirwan, producer of Hong Kong: City on Fire, who will discuss how they approach such subject matter in their work. 

This session is open to anyone. Filmmakers and general audience will be invited to contribute about the topics discussed, whether it be about their own practice or about their reception as a viewer.

We recommend attending the screening ahead of the session to fully benefit from this conversation. 

This is a free event, presented in collaboration with Scottish Documentary Institute.
