    HOSPITALITY as a filmic space (second edition)

    Xenia Open Air Film Festival is an international event that celebrates the concept and practice of Hospitality, which has been an integral part of many cultures since ancient times. Stories about Hospitality often revolve around a mutual exchange between hosts and guests, and globally, this tradition has connected culture and united humans, irrespective of social status, race, or religion. Today, Hospitality seems even more relevant, a beautiful and mutually beneficial exchange that fosters a ripple effect of sharing, support, and inclusion.

    This project arose in 2016 from the desire to question the film industry and its “primordial elements” and to give space for filmmakers and artists to experiment freely in audiovisual production and thinking.

  • Laal Aasmaan, Hara Gulaab, Neeli Dharti | 16mm film performance

    Cobalt as the midnight sky
    when day has gone without a trace
    and we lie in each other’s arms
    eyes shut and fingers open
    and all the colors of the world
    pass through our bodies like strings of fire.
    -Marge Piercy

    To live inside a poem, in its continuance.

  • La Raison Avant La Passion - Joyce Wieland

    This 1969 experimental film by Joyce Wieland consists primarily of degraded footage of landscapes shot from vehicles moving across the country; meanwhile, 537 computer-generated permutations of the film's title appear like subtitles—the letters are scrambled repeatedly, Wieland skillfully intertwines elements of cross-country travelogue, political satire, and modernist experiment.
