BFMAF 2019 - The Labour of Image Making

At a remove from cinema’s and television’s alluring veneer, there exists an exploited class of worker hidden behind the scenes. In Amateurs, Stars and Extras or the labor of love (2019), Marwa Arsanios provides an inversion of this dynamic, casting ‘amateurs’ and ‘extras’ as central characters. Meanwhile, Have you Ever Killed a Bear or Becoming Jamila (2014) exposes the labour of performance through an examination of Algerian freedom fighter Jamila Bouhired and her representation in the 1966 film The Battle of Algiers.
