Artists Remake the World

Joana Hadjithomas et Khalil Joreige

Biography

Joana Hadjithomas and Khalil Joreige are movie directors and visual artists. Ranging from documentaries (Khiam, Le Film Perdu, The Lebanese Rocket Society) to fictions (A Perfect Day, Je Veux Voir), their films are adventures that place them in a singular category in the worlds of film and art. Their photographic installations, sculptures and videos, produced from personal and political documents, tell the tale of stories kept secret by mainstream History. Their works rely on both imaginary foundations and contemporary narration, and are shouldered by their experiences in their homeland, while going beyond its frontiers.
