TARZAN AND ARAB: GAZAWOOD
Location: Theater Kikker
Writer and curator Omar Kholeif, will present and reflect on “Tarzan and Arab: Gazawood” (co-commission with Cornerhouse Manchester), a duo that makes pastiches of Hollywood Westerns under their fictional Gazawood banner – ironic, as Gaza hasn’t even had a functioning cinema in over two decades.
