Oraib Toukan 90/91: A live film event centered on the year 1991


‘The point of departure was the acoustic space of the Karmel Khalili public garden that leaks of sounds of primary school children playing indoors. For zalet lisan Toukan will be mixing films and soviet animation projects in a live screening in around the transitional year of 1991. The screenings are centered on two 16mm children’s films that Toukan recently found, restored, and digitized with Ala Younis from a heap of hand-me-downs from now-defunct soviet cultural center assets in Amman, Jordan. These will be intercepted with digital downloads from Yousef Chahine to Peter Hutton made in the year 1991. The set up is purposely made moveable and can be dismantled at any moment.’
