Film screening - For One More Hour With You by Alina Marazzi
NYU Abu Dhabi will host a film screening of One More Hour With You (Un'ora sola ti vorre) followed by a talk with its director, Alina Marazzi on Tuesday, 20th October 2015.
The screening is free to attend, but you must register in advance here.
Director Alina Marazzi’s mother, Liseli, died when Alina was 7 years old. Having few personal memories herself, Alina always knew that the visual memory of her mother was locked inside one of her grandparents’ closets, containing amateur 16mm films shot by her grandfather between 1926 and 1970.
Only as an adult did she dare watch the films, suddenly projecting her mother to life. From a recording of her mother speaking to her in a forgotten moment, to letters, journals, medical reports, and films, Alina reconstructs her mother's life at different times: childhood, love, family, illness, existential malaise.
Date: Tuesday, 20th October 2015, 6.30-8.30pm
