The Video Diaries, Khaled Hafez (6min19sec, 2011)
Khaled Hafez’s latest work, The Video Diaries, is the artist’s response to the revolution that swept through Egypt in January and February 2011. This three-channel video has been adapted for Ibraaz into a single-channel work in which three windows display footage either shot by the artist or taken from social and international media.

40 Shades of Grey, Nicky Larkin (1hr24min, 2011)
Nicky Larkin’s film, premiering in Dublin and Zurich in March, is an experimental, feature-length, non-narrative film piece, shot on location in Israel and Palestine. Some very black and white ideas and opinions exist, particularly in Europe, when people think of this notorious hot-spot. This project aims to explore the forty shades of grey and the many stories that exist in between the definite black and white opinions that we are presented with daily in our Western news media.
