|PROGRAM 1 FRANCIS ALS|
Direction: Francis Alÿs
Francis Alÿs in collaboration with the Iraq-based Ruya Foundation and Julien Devaux
The children of a mountain village near Mosul reenact a century of Iraqi history, from the secret agreement of Sykes/Picot signed in 1916 to the realm of terror established by the Islamic State in 2016. The children revisit their past to understand their present.
