DEATH IS CERTAIN BUT NOT FINAL: A PERFORMANCE LECTURE ON THE ROLE OF ABSENCE IN RADICAL DOCUMENTARY CINEMA

Filmmaker Saeed Taji Farouky will take participants through a non-academic, irreverent, multi-media exploration of ‘absence’ as an essential creative and political component of radical / experimental documentary filmmaking.

Journeying through music, literature, dance, film and architecture, Saeed will examine how certainty and presence – requirements of capitalist, industrial filmmaking – can be challenged and contradicted to devise new ways of storytelling.

This performance lecture by Saeed Taji Farouky follows the screening of his latest film, A Thousand Fires (2022) at 17:30, Summerhall.

This event is part of SDI’s Crossing the Line programme: a series of conversations with filmmakers who challenge the boundaries of documentary cinema.
