Mural is a series of film screenings that aims to celebrate the work of FLINTA/BIWOC/BIPOC filmmakers – more specifically artists with a migration or refugee background – platforming films made with skill and imagination despite the difficulties these artists face accessing resources, spaces and funding. We showcase a wide variety of genres and visual experiments in order to build an alternative space through which to present our voices to the world. With fragments assembled from collective memory, we enrich our visual imagination and in doing so create our own mural.

Explorations of mental health and gender transition, memories of childhood and the push and pull of familial connections, romantic dating and expressing affection through the power of music; the third volume of the Mural screening series brings together 8 films by up and coming FLINTA/BIWOC/BIPOC filmmakers from around the world.

Zahra addresses the dialectic of death and life through the depths of her innocent imagination; Ali, a young Egyptian living in self-exile in Los Angeles, is visited by a memory of an old friend; The protagonist traces the root causes of her depression to her mom’s unhappy life; Ali takes a personal look at the complexities of his childhood in an attempt to reconnect with his feelings at that time. 2 people meet via a dating app using fake profile pictures and fake personal information. The film follows 3 characters as their fate unravels amid the chaos as Syria’s National Football Team plays an important match in Damascus. An intimate film essay that explores the affectional bonds in human groups that use music to express themselves non-verbally. Zainab is a successful girl who supports her family financially, but considers herself a boy in spirit, and now she has decided to undergo gender transition. (Mural)
