Film: Route 181

Awde_01-1024x768

During the Summer of 2002 Israeli and Palestinian filmmakers, Michel Khleifi and Eyal Sivan, travelled the length of their country of birth. Tracing their trajectory on a map, they called it ‘Route 181’ after United Nations Resolution 181 – the 1947 partition plan to split Palestine into two states: one Arab and one Jewish. This 3-part documentary follows them as they meet the two peoples along the route. A rare chance to see all three parts of the seminal travelogue across two days.

Panel Discussion with John Cowpertwait

Join us for an exploration of the impact of images – what do we associate with what is presented to us, how do we read a photograph without title or context and what are the stories we discover? Three people with diverse backgrounds – in design/making, photography, psychology, urban and food studies come together to talk about John Cowpertwait’s series, for the pleasure of it.
