Leading figures include Béla Tarr, Tsai Ming-Liang, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Abbas Kiarostami, Lav Diaz, Pedro Costa and Ben Rivers.

    Silent Territory: 24th Edition Casablanca International Video Art Festival Morocco

    Video art can be apprehended as a territory in constant redefinition. The international selection of the FIAV 2018 "Silent Territory" questions the boundary (the path that borders between two borders), the zone, the interval, the boundary, the route, the dam, the end, the point of separation and the lines demarcation between multicultural societies. The videos of the selection pose several questions: but what is a territory? Is it unlimited like the horizon?
