Non-Aligned Newsreels: Fragments #4

Live documentary performance

5/04/23 7pm


RSVP below for this in person event.

Attend Non-Aligned Newsreels: Fragments #4 (2023, 60 mins), a live documentary audience by filmmaker Mila Turajlic.

With Non-Aligned Newsreels: Fragments #4 (2023, 60 mins), Mila Turajlic invites the audience into a process of confronting archival material which has fallen out political narratives. The starting point is the recovery of a trove of reels kept in the vaults of the Yugoslav Newsreels, filmed by their cameramen across the non-aligned world from the 1950s through the 1970s – within the ranks of the Algerian Liberation Movement and FRELIMO, for newly-independent countries such as Mali and Tanzania, at Non-Aligned Summits. Integrating this ‘resurfaced’ footage with oral histories, sound recordings and personal archives into a confessional speculation, Turajlic performs the challenges of giving voice to unfulfilled political projects. The live ‘excavation’ opens a space where she and the audience journey together exploring the poetics of the fragmentary.

Mila Turajlic, born in Belgrade, Yugoslavia, is an award-winning filmmaker and visual artist whose documentary works draw on a combination of oral histories, film archives and found footage to fabricate a new reflexive language that confronts memory and ruins with the disappearing narratives of history. Her most recent project, the documentary diptych SCENES FROM THE LABUDOVIC REELS – an archival road trip through the birth of the Third World – premiered at TIFF and IDFA in autumn 2022. Works from her long term artistic research project NON-ALIGNED NEWSREELS were curated for the 2022 Berlin Biennale, IDFA on Stage and international exhibitions, including MoMA New York 2018 landmark exhibition on Yugoslav modernist architecture.
