Attend Non-Aligned Newsreels: Fragments #4, a live documentary audience by filmmaker Mila Turajlic.
With Non-Aligned Newsreels: Fragments #4 (2023, 60 mins), Mila Turajlic invites the audience into a process of confronting archival material which has fallen out political narratives. The starting point is the recovery of a trove of reels kept in the vaults of the Yugoslav Newsreels, filmed by their cameramen across the non-aligned world from the 1950s through the 1970s – within the ranks of the Algerian Liberation Movement and FRELIMO, for newly-independent countries such as Mali and Tanzania, at Non-Aligned Summits. Integrating this ‘resurfaced’ footage with oral histories, sound recordings and personal archives into a confessional speculation, Turajlic performs the challenges of giving voice to unfulfilled political projects. The live ‘excavation’ opens a space where she and the audience journey together exploring the poetics of the fragmentary.
