After the screening of "Ait Atta : Nomads of the High Atlas Mountains" , a forum discussion on how to govern the commons and enact gender sensitive societal transformation, through engaged scholarship.

Inanc Tekguc & Eda Elif Tibet & Sebastien Boillat & Timothy Adams

Just very recently we asked Raed Andoni ,Berlin Ale Winner of Best Documentary Film, Ghost Hunting; "How do you feel about the lockdown?" of which we recorded the entire conversation at a Zoom meeting (see the link below), here is his response :

"As a Palestinian, I feel at home , I feel energised for having my survival soul being awakened, maybe this is sick but ask the people in Palestine they feel the same, Palestine has been under a lock down for ages, we are almost addicted to live like this under emergency situations in a war", he loughs:)

Rest of our conversation follows with Raed drawing similarities on his work with the theatre of the oppressed, he talks of his unique technique in film-making of restorying and re-narrating his unpleasant memories into good ones. With the reenactments of his imprisonment experience, he talks on the processes of his own transformation from the need to authority to the need of co-creation. He reflects on his major motivations in making this film which he treats as a psychoanalytical tool and as a platform creation for ex-prisoners to share and express their emotions. He tells the backstage stories behind their ghost hunting, of some moments and incidences that did not make it to the film. He concludes with how he has managed to change the hurtful past into a story of strength, resilience and triumph that came with great pride, glory and most importantly with healing.

His film Ghost Hunting is dedicated to 5,000 Palestinians who are currently inside the Israeli prisons, including 43 women and 180 children, 430 in administrative detention, 700 patients, 200 suffering from chronic diseases.

Thank you for participating from all around the world and making this happen!!

In solidarity and peace,


ETHNOKINO Virtual film gathering series during times of quarantene are going quite inspiring. We had an incredibly fruitful discussion after the film screening of SUSPENSION with nearly all the film crew members being present as they connected to Switzerland from Colombia.The experience felt like being in a single living room having a late evening (in the parallel world, an early morning) talk with good friends:) Simon's film inquired how the state is built through infrastructure alongside the disasters and tragedies it caused, he says this is a "different kind of story, of the state".

His film based on his longitudinal doctorate research (funded by the Wenner Gren Foundation) is also accompanied by a book , for those who would like to know more :


Stay tuned for the next virtual gathering of our upcoming one night only screening. This time we will be hosted at the living room of Tibetan Filmmakers to watch and talk about "Rituals of Resistance". Date and time to be announced soon.

Virtual gathering with the filmmakers being present online.
