Artists and filmmakers Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige joined Guggenheim curator Reem Fadda in conversation about their practice that explores the complexities of documenting history through different media.
Producing cinematic and visual artwork that intertwine, Hadjithomas and Joreige have directed documentaries such as Khiam 2000–2007 (2008) and El Film el Mafkoud (The Lost Film, 2003), and feature films including Al Bayt el Zaher (Around The Pink House, 1999), A Perfect Day (2005), and Je veux voir (I want to see, 2008). In 2013, they presented their feature documentary, The Lebanese Rocket Society, a strange tale of the Lebanese space race and a series of artistic installations around the Lebanese space project of the 1960s. They live in Beirut and Paris. For more info, visit their website.
