Vanishing Spaces, London

 

As part of the Mayor of London’s Shubbak Festival celebrating contemporary Arab culture across London, Zenith Foundation is presenting Vanishing Spaces : 6 short films (total 80 minutes) + discussion with programmer Mona Deeley.
With the ‘Arab Spring’ still unfolding and Obama’s recent call for the return of Israel to its 1967 boundaries, Vanishing Spaces provides a timely and engaging exploration of the people and places behind some of those events.
