Sabine El Chamaa: “As if her song could have no ending”
April 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Filmmaker and CHRA Fellow will share her work-in-progress, As if her song could have no ending at a free, community event at Upstate Films in Rhinebeck on Wednesday, April 12, 7pm EDT.
A film script is an unfinished work, a ghost that seeks to inhabit a form. Where do the characters that are conceived for years, but that fail to find their bodies in an image, reside? This film attempts to materialize their presence in New York City.
Created during her fellowship at CHRA this year, As if her song could have no ending explores previous scripts and films in progress as well as memories and travels.
