Refugee Week at the BFI – The Art of Exile: A Filmmaking Masterclass with Koutaiba Al-Janabi

Join this award-winning Iraqi-born cinematographer, director and photographer for career insights and discussion alongside a screening of his 2018 film, Stories of Passers Through (67min). Shot over 30 years, this genre-defying, richly cinematic work explores memory, loss and belonging. The afternoon will also consider Al-Janabi’s earlier films such as Leaving Baghdad, an acclaimed drama following the experiences of Saddam Hussein’s personal photographer, and will include clips from his recent feature film The Woodman.

In partnership with the British Film Institute.
