Shezad Dawood: Towards the Possible Film

£20.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

Published on the occasion of the exhibition, Dawood: Towards the Possible Film, held April 4-May 25, 2014 at Parasol Unit Foundation for Contemporary Art, London.
The film was shot at Legzira beach in Sidi Ifni, Morocco, in a landscape that could well be an alien planet, where otherworldly figures appear as if to threaten the peace. The region’s history and the many wars fought in the 1950s and 60s between Spain, Morocco and the independent Saharan tribes were certainly a source of inspiration for Dawood. In contrast, A Mystery Play, 2010, was filmed in a monumental and elaborate, early twentieth-century, Masonic building in Winnipeg, Canada. The film is inspired not only by Masonic rituals, but also by the town’s history of having an extensive culture of performance and burlesque, in particular for performances by Buster Keaton and Harry Houdini.
Limited edition of 800 copies.
