Post- screening discussion with Alsaegh.

Monday, October 23, 6:00 p.m. | Join Nightingale Projects for an evening of short experimental films by Saif Alsaegh. Alsaegh is a United States–based filmmaker from Baghdad. Much of his work deals with the contrast between the landscape of his youth in Baghdad growing up as part of the Indigenous Chaldean minority in the 90s and early 2000s, and the US landscape where he currently lives. His films have screened in festivals including Cinéma du Réel, Kurzfilm Hamburg, Kassel Dokfest, Aesthetica Short Film Festival, and in galleries and museums including the Wisconsin Triennial at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art and the Rochester Contemporary Art Center. He received his master of fine arts in film from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Programmed by Drew Durepos. Post- screening discussion with Alsaegh.
