The Noise of Cairo | Self-portrait in Handcuffs

Double Bill

Part of Art, Politics & Protest series.

The Noise of Cairo

Director Heiko Lange takes us to downtown Cairo to meet 12 artists who, in the wake of Mubarak’s overthrow, celebrate their newly won freedoms in paint, dance, photography, street art and theatre.

See the new face of Egyptian art, flourishing at the epicentre of Egypt’s ongoing political upheaval. 

Self-portrait in Handcuffs

Filmmaker Viktar Dashuk brings us a quirky documentary about a very different kind of Belarusian revolutionary.

With many of his comrades-in-arts having long since fled or been exiled, Ales Pushkin wages an eccentric one-man battle of artistic resistance against the repressive dictatorship.
