Artist Talk & Screening: 6:30 - 9:00 pm, Dudley Recital Hall
What We Left Unfinished exhibition on view in Blaffer Art Museum: January 21-March 14, 2020
What We left Unfinished tells the incredible and mostly true story of five unfinished feature films from the Communist era in Afghanistan (1978-1991), when films were weapons, filmmakers became targets, and the dreams of constantly shifting political regimes merged with the stories told onscreen. Alongside the film/s, Ghani will also present archival materials accumulated in its making, sister video portraits of Afghanistan, and a site-specific iteration of her ongoing archive project Index of the Disappeared (with collaborator Chitra Ganesh) in the Special Collections Department of MD Anderson Library.
