Re|sound II
Film screening with live original music
Friday, 14 December 2018
8:30–10:00 pm
Mirage City Cinema, Al Mureijah Square, Sharjah

Sharjah Art Foundation (SAF) invites you to attend Re|sound II on Friday, 14 December 2018 at Mirage City Cinema. The programme will feature a screening of the avant-garde documentary film Enthusiasm: Symphony of the Donbass (1931), presented in tandem with a live music performance by experimental electronic artists Liliane Chlela, Salem Rashid and Shams Asma.

This edition’s selected film, Enthusiasm: Symphony of the Donbass, was directed by Soviet filmmaker Dziga Vertov. The three-part film is a celebration of socialism in the region of Donbass (located in present-day Ukraine), where Stalin’s five-year plan focused its efforts to generate economic productivity. Vertov’s film techniques influenced many films that followed, and he is now considered a pioneer of documentary and radical moviemaking.

Re|sound is a biannual event for musical experimentation in dialogue with the medium of film. The foundation invites locally and regionally based musicians to prepare and perform live original sets in conversation with a projected film. This event continues the foundation’s long and varied work in film and music.

This event is free and open to the public. Visit to learn more.
