The Sharjah Biennial 10: Film and Audio Commissions Exhibition has been on since 10th November 2011 and there's a few days left for this, it will end on 14th January 2011. 

I've been meaning to share this for a while and told myself I must make sure I don't miss this, particularly because the exhibition includes the screening of Rania Stephan's The Three Disappearances of Soad Hosni which I wrote about a few months ago and I'm dying to watch

About the exhibition: 

This exhibition will present seven films and three audio works commissioned for Sharjah Biennial 10. Six filmmakers were invited to create a new short film inspired by the Biennial’s title Plot for a Biennial and the key words–Treason, Affiliation, Corruption, Necessity, Devotion, Disclosure, Translation and Insurrection–that constituted its conceptual framework.

Also on view is Rania Stephan’s Sharjah Biennial Prize winning film The Three Disappearances of Soad Hosni.

 Rania Stephan, The Three Disappearances of Soad Hosni (Ikhtifa’aat Soad Hosni el-Thalaathat), 2011, Lebanon/UAE, film still.

In addition to the films, this exhibition will present audio works created by filmmakers for Sharjah Biennial 10.  These works reflect the content of the commissioned films and resonate with the energy of the Arab Spring.
