Screening to be followed by discussion with Mariam Ghani and Xiaoyu Weng
How do we make images of the invisible, archive what has been removed from records, or build a documentary around what is not being said? These questions underpin much of artist, writer and filmmaker Mariam Ghani’s work, which is concerned with the unseen, the obscured, the unsaid, the unsayable, and the erased.
On April 5th, UnionDocs is proud to welcome Ghani to present two projects: the 2016 film The Seen Unseen, produced by the experimental archive Index of the Disappeared, a long-term partnership between artists Mariam Ghani and Chitra Ganesh, and an excerpt from the work-in-progress What We Left Unfinished, a feature-length documentary edited by Ian Olds, which developed from Ghani’s long-term engagement with the national film archive of Afghanistan.
