‘[ana] please keep your eyes closed for a moment’ is travelling to A4 in Alserkal Avenue and Abu Dhabi Art, for more active engagement with wider audiences in UAE, through its ‘Secret Cinema’ film screening programme.

The selected short films, shown for the first time in the region, allow us a glimpse into the stories of individuals, told by them and encourage us to emotionally connect with the protagonists in the videos.   

The screening at A4 is followed by ‘artist and curator’s talk’ with Ayoung Kim and JW Stella. Kim will talk about her ongoing film production including her recent project, Zepheth, Whale Oil from the Hanging Gardens to You, Shell3 (2015) commissioned by the 56th Venice Biennale, All the World’s Futures.

The films on ‘Secret Cinema’ are directed by Ayoung Kim, Sojung Jun, HyunMi Yoo and Red Carpet Sprit (lead by Ingeun Kim)

Secret Cinema is held at Maraya’s new screening room every weekend throughout the exhibition period. It also travels to ‘Shanghai Duolun Museum of Modern Art in China.
