and present Orfeo on the Beach
July – September 2021
In collaboration with Sicilia Queer, Institut français, and Nomadica, Nuova Orfeo and MeNO present Orfeo on the Beach, a season of radical, feminist, cult film, experimental cinema and artist's moving image at the historic open air cinema La Sirenetta.
The programme features cult feminist classics such as Barbara Loden's Wanda and Atlantiques by Mati Diop, which won the 2019 Jury Prize at Cannes and was the first ever film by a black female director to enter the competition. We also present an evening with the artist Pauline Curnier Jardin, the Italian premiere of Gibson's Dear Barbara, Bette, Nina and a curatorial collaboration with the collectives Nomadica and ৺ ෴ ර ∇ ❃﹌﹌ on film, feminism and the Italian South.
Programmed by Beatrice Gibson. Co-ordinated by Stella Sideli.
MeNO - Memore e Nuove Opere - founded in Palermo as a spin-off of Manifesta 12 promotes the connection between tangible and intangible heritage and new forms of contemporary artistic production. MeNO designs and realizes international art projects involving a wide community of artists and intellectuals and explores the transformation of the relationship between citizens, space and time.
