• Artists' films

    FIAC and Fondation d’entreprise Ricard present the ninth edition of the Cinéphémère, a short films programme by artists streamed during FIAC week, from Wednesday 17th to Sunday 21st of October. Some thirty artists’ films have been selected by associate curator Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez, independent curator, editor and writer. The films are screened in open and free access, in a nomad 14-seat movie theatre entirely equipped for this purpose, located on Avenue Winston Churchill, between the Grand Palais and the Petit Palais. At a time of violent racialization and profound ecological crisis, organized governmental abuse of natural resources and common goods is reinforced, but so are civil and citizen initiatives and resistances. At a time when increasingly “breathing clean air is political, drinking pure water is political” (Black Quantum Futurism collective), we observe critical artistic positions and voices that engage in real life situations, activist research and fieldwork across Global North and Global South. This programme of videos and short films brings together internationally acclaimed artists from various backgrounds whose work is inspired and informed by gendered ecologies, intersections between racial and ecological issues, pollution, toxicity and environmental racism. The films present narrations on past, present and future catastrophes through approaches and knowledge that come from Afrofuturism and Arab futurism, ecofeminist engagement and social justice struggles.

    Presented artists: Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Sophia Al Maria, Basma Alsharif, Marwa Arsanios, Sammy Baloji, Ali Cherri, Joana Hadjithomas & Khalil Joreige, Emre Hüner, Kapwani Kiwanga, Vik Muniz, Uriel Orlow, LaToya Ruby Frazier, Xu Tan, Koki Tanaka, Charwei Tsai, Robin Vanbesienc, among others.
