av Selma Doborac
8. november.

Please note that we will be hosted by the lovely Art Academy at Grønnegata 1, the film will start 18.00 in the Black Box.

We are delighted to invite you to a night with artist-filmmaker, Selma Doborac. Kurant Kino will be screening her feature length film, Those Shocking Shaking Days, followed by a Q & A about her film and practise, moderated by Kurant Kino’s guest curator, Sarah Schipschack.

For this screening Kurant Kino is generously being hosted by Tromsø Academy for Contemporary Art. The event will take place in English.

Through a feature length film-essay Those Shocking Shaking Days explores the importance of language, imagery and poetry in relation to trauma. Can art ever convey war without exploitation or doing a disservice to the trauma it is trying to reveal? Challenging, difficult, occasionally funny, personable and personal, Doborac presents a deeply thoughtful and relentless questioning of how we present war and its consequences.

Selma Doborac born in Bosnia and Herzegovina, now living practising in Vienna, Austria. She graduated from the Department for Mixed Media Strategies under Bernard Leitner, at the University of Applied Art, Vienna, in 2007, and latterly from the Department for Art and Film, under Harun Farocki, at the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna, in 2012.
