My love for you, Egypt, increases by the day, an excerpt from Voices From The Revolution will be screened in "Fluid Spaces", curated by Charlotte Bank, a cooperation between AlFilm Arab Film Festival Berlin and IFA Gallery Berlin.
The result was thousands of heartfelt messages from Egyptians recording their emotions by phone.It attempts to depict the harsh reality of the physical state of the city and addresses the role that the urban infrastructure plays in instigating unrest amongst its inhabitants. The project reveals the hopes and fears of a people who have yet to discover the outcome of their revolution within the context of their crumbling surroundings. This is not another documentary about the revolution but rather an artistic presentation revealing the collective psyche during a specific time-frame.
Voices From The Revolution is a film by Heba Amin - an Egyptian artist whose work seeks to map collective memory as it relates to the built environment. Her theoretical and studio-based work addresses themes related to urban planning, mapping, migration/immigration and language as an aesthetic database to explore junctures, failures, and flawed memory. She works in an archival nature, drawing from collections of work to reconfigure and make meaning of the subject through different materials, most often manifesting as video, installation, and projection performance. Amin received an MFA in Interactive Design at the University of Minnesota. She currently lives in Berlin. More information about her work can be found at www.hebaamin.com.
