Full razan

The Ann Arbor Film Festival, EMU School of Art & Design and School of Communication, Media and Theater and Arts present a lecture by Razan AlSalah. Razan AlSalah is a Palestinian filmmaker and media artist based between the US, Canada and Lebanon. Her work explores our contemporary (dis)connection to place, which particularly comes to question in digital spaces, and more so now in virtual reality. Razan’s work has exhibited at the Ann Arbor Film Festival Off the Screen! series, Blackstar Film Festival Lossless exhibition and is in the permanent collection of the Sursock Museum in her hometown Beirut, Lebanon. Her latest short film, your father was born a 100 years old, and so was the Nakba, won the Sunbird Award for Best Narrative Short at Cinema Days Palestine and has been acquired by the Palestine Films Collection. Razan is a 2018 Knight Fellow at the Sundance Film Festival and was a 3-year Fulbright scholar pursuing her MFA in Film and Media Arts at Temple University where she now teaches; she is also a mentor at the CAMRA Fellows Program at the University of Pennsylvania.
