In a dialogue between the Cimatheque – Alternative Film Centre in Cairo and Arsenal, the focus is on independent cinema and the significance of the archive for contemporary curatorial practice. The workshop is in English and open to a limited number of participants. Places will be awarded as registrations are received.
