Off Frame AKA Revolution Until Victory

Mohanad Yaqubi [Pal.-Qatar-Fr.-Liban, 2016, 62 min, num., VOSTA/Original version with English subtitles]

À l’aide de documents d’archives uniques, Off Frame offre une réflexion sur la lutte engagée par le peuple palestinien pour produire des images de lui-même et selon ses propres termes lors de la révolution palestinienne des années 1960 et 70.

 
Off Frame is a meditation on the Palestinian people’s struggle to produce an image and self-representation on their own terms in the 1960s and 1970s, during the Palestinian revolution. Unearthing films stored in archives across the world after unprecedented research and access, the film begins with popular representations of modern Palestine and traces the works of militant filmmakers in reclaiming image and narrative through revolutionary and militant cinema. In resurrecting a forgotten memory of struggle, Off Frame reanimates what is within the frame, but also weaves in critical reflection by looking for what is outside it, or what is off frame.
