This Winter Stills has teamed up with the Cinémathèque de Tanger to transform our gallery into a trans-Arab video library.
 
Wind your way through our mini cinema spaces and encounter video and film work produced throughout the diverse cultural, political and social space of the Arab world; a world that now spans from Beirut to Paris to Los Angeles and back again.
 
The featured artists and filmmakers explore alternative histories, the intersection between tradition and globalisation and engagements with radical and shifting notions of ‘modernity’ itself.
 
This exhibition unearths rare works and previously unseen footage from the archive of the new Cinémathèque de Tanger. Located on the historic Grand Socco plaza and standing at the auspicious intersection of the old city (the medina) and the new, this historic building is now being transformed into Morocco’s leading independent cinema.
