ALTERITY

What is the place of ‘the other’ in mainstream cinema? Alterity – or the state of being other – has relevance for this film from Palestinian filmmaker, Elia Suleiman. Set in the occupied territories, it’s a love story with comic shades of Keaton and Tati, in which the protagonists meet secretly by an Israeli checkpoint.

Stephen Boyd will discuss this film in the context of world cinema and ‘otherness’ and how it contrasts with more mainstream representations.

This event is taking place as part of the IFI Evening Course: In Theory (Tuesdays, Oct 6th – Nov 10th). Full course price: €70 (€65 concessions), including tea/coffee. Please book your place by calling Sharon Corrigan on 01 679 5744 or emailing   scorrigan@irishfilm.ie (individual tickets for films on this Course are not available.)
